About this Event

Title: Painting Portraits in Acrylic

Description:

This course will guide students step-by-step through the process of making a painted portrait.

Starting with sketches in charcoal students will be taught the basics of portraiture, such as how to measure proportion to achieve a likeness. They will then learn how make a monochrome underpainting to determine the tonal values of the portrait. Finally they will learn to mix colours and create finished portraits in acrylics.

Working from a live model, students will make several finished portraits during the week, thereby practising and consolidating what they have learned. This course is suitable for students with some previous knowledge of drawing or painting.

All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.

Note the 10% Early-Bird discount for payments made before the end of February!
