Event description
Learn to draw portraits from life in a small group with tuition. Suitable for all levels with materials provided.

About this Event

These monthly evening sessions are a great opportunity to learn about drawing a portrait from life. You will be introduced you to a range of techniques that will help to develop your drawing skills.

You will work from a single long pose for three hours each session with the support of a tutor. The class size is small, allowing you to work towards your own personal goals whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced artist looking to enhance your skills.

Topics covered

  • The structure of the head
  • Perspective and orientation
  • Positioning of the features and anatomy
  • Composition and lighting
  • Planes of the head and tonal value
  • Creating focus through selective rendering of detail
  • Working with different materials
  • Using your time efficiently

As you’d expect with any Northern Realist session, it’s a chance to spend time concentrating on your work beside like-minded friendly artists - with all the usual tea, biscuits and friendly conversation that goes with it.

Follow Northern Realist on Facebook and Instagram.

Dates and Times
