£60 for all 4 classes

All materials are included with your own set of pure graphite pencils to take away if it is your first drawing course.

Tea, coffee and homemade biscuits at every session.

Week 1: We will begin the course by looking at different artist's styles to gain inspiration and discuss what makes a good portrait. We will then spend the session learning and putting into practice, techniques for drawing the outline.

Week 2: This week is focused on shading and its importance in creating a realistic depiction of the subject. Techniques for shading will be introduced, practiced and tied into what was learnt the week before.

Week 3: Using a photograph of your choice we will begin working on the final portrait. We look again at different styles to plan what it is you are aiming for and then put to the test techniques learnt in weeks 1 and 2.

Week 4: The final week will be finishing off the portraits started in the previous session. There will be guidance and helpful evaluation throughout to make sure you reach the best of your abilities and create a portrait to be proud of.
