Description

Monday evenings 18:00 - 20:30
24 February - 30 March 2020


Gain confidence and develop a strong understanding of how to draw the portrait in graphite and charcoal. The course will be centred around drawing from a live model, with opportunities to study from photographs and works by master artists to develop skills and gain confidence.

In a supportive and relaxed environment the emphasis will be placed upon the enjoyment and fulfilment of what drawing from life can bring to students of all levels!We will start by working on the fundamentals of drawing in order to learn and practise basic set up, develop confidence with the use of materials and become familair with key terms.

  • The following two weeks will include drawing from life, working on line, proportion and the importance of light and shadow.

  • Mid way through the course we’ll focus on completing a copy of a portrait by a master artist which will help to further understand the skills previously acquired.

  • The final two weeks will consist of two larger drawings, putting together all of the principles to achieve a likeness. Personal style and creativity will also be explored at this stage.

  • Weekly optional homework tasks will be set with support for any questions and guidance throughout the course.


Who is the course for?
The course is suitable for adult beginners and improvers. Small class sizes mean you’ll enjoy hands on tuition to get the most from the experience.


Do I need to bring anything?
You will need to bring some personal materials, such as papers, pencils and paints. You won’t need anything for the first session however and more information will be provided each week.

Easels and drawing boards will be provided. Refreshments including tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

Through his own creative practice he aims to communicate the raw complexities of the portrait, finding a mutual connection of feeling between the subject, artist, and the viewer.
