Do faces fascinate you? Draw and paint from the model and learn to make portraits that are solid and realistic. Use knowledge of proportion, anatomical structure, tonal contrast and colour theory to improve your drawing and experiment with acrylic and/or oil painting.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
This is a practical class and you will spend most of your class time drawing and / or painting at home. You will work on self portraits, portraits of family members (if applicable) and/or transcriptions of portraits by artists selected by your tutor. Your tutor will send you a lesson plan by email every week with options for self-directed drawing and painting with tutorial support.
The class will use Teams or Zoom for group discussions and for short lectures on artists' work. Although there are limitations when working from home, there is an opportunity here to harness and investigate ideas away from the college studio. It might be that your work could (in part) reflect elements from this challenging time.
