Taught by an experienced local artist, this course is for you if you’ve ever wondered how to get a likeness of somebody. Using the handy template, practise drawing different face shapes, features and expressions. Experiment with line drawing and shading effects and learn effective new artistic techniques. Bring in a celebrity photo or photo of a loved one and create a pencil portrait. Undertake a self portrait in charcoal. Add colour with paint or pastel. Choose an abstract or classical style. Learn what to look for and what to leave out of your picture and how to assess and improve your results as you go along. You’ll compile a wonderful book of artwork that you’ve produced in class, which you can add to with the optional homework assignments – something to continue building on long after the course is over, which will bring you a sense of achievement and accomplishment every time you turn the pages.
