This is a Learning for Personal Interest course.
This course will aim to explore, develop and invigorate your portrait drawing using a variety of innovative approaches and use of drawing materials.
We will utilise a combination of resources, such as; your student colleagues, yourselves (via a mirror) and photographs, in tandem with how other artists have approached depicting the portrait through history. We will be exploring and applying different ways to achieve an accurate sense of the head, away from just outlines and edges to enable your drawings to become more expressive and imaginatively inspired.

What previous experience, knowledge or qualifications do I need for this course?

This course is aimed at both complete beginners and those with previous experience who want to continue and build upon their skills and vision, where everyone is welcome to work in a sociable supportive group environment.

What do I need to bring with me?
