About the Course

Challenge and extend your ideas about what makes a good portrait and learn different ways of building structure under the guidance of our experienced artist tutor. Using both photographs and a live portrait model, you’ll practise observation, tone, structure and colour as well as experimenting with different drawing techniques to capture likeness and character. You’ll also be taken through the work of portraits by various artists to draw inspiration and explore ideas. You’ll have plenty of time to practice and interact with the other artists in the group, perhaps critiquing each other’s work.

Holiday highlights
- Try a fresh approach to portraiture
- Our professional artist leader will guide and encourage
