Portrait Drawing Course
time: 6-8pm Monday. Starting:Monday September 19th
venue: Fruit and Fibres: Craft Canteen, Baltic Triangle
price: £90 for full six week course (or £16 per two hour session)
Exercises and tuition to help you improve your portrait drawing or help get you started. The aim is to mix taught exercises aimed at highlighting particular points often using sculptural reference with drawing exercises from a portrait model allowing you to put these principles into action.
The time will be divided between taught exercises and drawing from a portrait model on alternate weeks.
topics include: understanding drawing materials, drawing in line, the block-in, the structure of the head, shadow models and tonal drawing
Bring a range of pencils from 2H to 6B recommended.
For paper I suggest a selection of larger pieces ideally A3 and some cheap A4 copier paper for quick sketches
I have drawing boards(A3) and a selection of materials available.
