Introduction to Portraiture

This is a technical course that will include both drawing and painting and will introduce students to:

  • Basic anatomy and structure of the head
  • The features (eyes, nose and mouth)
  • Painting flesh with a limited palette
  • The final four weeks of the course you will be drawing one of two models that will join the class

During the first four weeks you will be drawing; focusing on anatomy, structure and form. The final four weeks you will paint a portrait of one of our life models.

This course is best for artists with some experience in painting and drawing.

All you will need to bring along is an A3 canvas pad for weekly exercises. All other materials are provided.

Classes will be restricted to about ten places to ensure one-on-one tuition.
