This is a really fun one-day workshop exploring the structure & foibles of the human face. In order to represent the face convincingly in either a literal or exaggerated sense, it is necessary to observe its variations, constants and visual anchors.
Suitable for complete beginners and keen enthusiasts I will take you through a series of exercises and experiments examining features and proportions of the human face whilst trying out a number of drawing techniques. You'll use drawing paper, charcoal, pencil, rubbers, rags and your hands.
You'll get messy and should find the experience both pleasantly challenging and relaxing at the same time.
NB: - a Lateral Flow Test must be taken at home before entering the studio

I've attended several of Louise's workshops and despite feeling rather nervous at tackling the human face I needn't have worried. I was amazed and delighted at what I achieved and this is all down to Louise's exceptional teaching skills. She has the gift of leading you through step by step from warm up exercises to end result in a way that is both instructional and encouraging, and really gets the best out of you. Louise's studio is a delightful space, filled with light and is a pleasure to work in. Her classes are never too crowded so you really feel you have individual attention when you need it. Thank you Louise, Im looking forward to signing up to your new programme!
Response from Louise Burdett Artist:Ah, thanks so much Su for your wonderful review. I can't wait to get back to teaching again and look forward to seeing you very soon. x
I found this workshop to be very enjoyable and satisfying. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and the facilities were excellent. With Louise's tuition, demonstration, and encouragement I produced results that pleased and surprised me. I didn't hesitate to attend further workshops on creative drawing and life drawing, which again achieved better than expected results. I will certainly return once a new program of events becomes available.
Response from Louise Burdett Artist:Thank you James. Always a pleasure to teach you - I look forward to seeing you back as soon as we can work safely in the studio. Louise x
