This 6-week course will introduce you to the basic skills required to capture a portrait through drawing. These skills will then be used to complete one or more finished portrait drawings that capture a face that you want to remember.
This course is suitable for beginners and those with more experience. Each six week block will cover a range of drawing techniques and media to explore traditional as well as more contemporary techniques, allowing participants to sign up for one 6 week block or more.
