Portraiture

Portraiture

A class for students of all abilities with a keen interest in portraiture. Working from life, students are encouraged to work at their own pace with help and advice from the tutor.

The first weeks of the course are tutor led, looking at proportion and measuring and experimentation with different media. The course includes reference to work by professional artists. The last half of the course is designed so that students can work with a model in their chosen media to produce a finished piece.
