Event description
Beginner’s Portraiture

This is a course for beginners who want to learn how to produce portraits whether they have some experience in art or not. Together, we will explore this subject in a supportive and fun-filled class where you are guaranteed to succeed. Students will learn the fundamental skills necessary for portraiture by using a step-by-step approach that enables them to produce a finished piece they can be proud of. We will be sharing ideas to exchange tips and learn from each other.
By the end of the course you will have all the technical skills needed to work unaided in your own studio and each week you will have the option of practicing skills you have learnt in the class at home.
Each student will be given a materials list so that they can come to the classes with all that they need. And every student will also have access to resources and worksheets online. The classes are designed to develop skills by building on what has been previously learnt. Step-by-step demonstrations and individual help is a winning formula which ensures success. All students are encouraged to keep a sketchbook for experimentation. Class size is limited to a maximum of 10 students so that individual attention can be assured.
Students will learn all of the techniques needed to be able to produce successful portraits. They will also be given hints and tips and secrets of drawing that I have picked up over the thirty years as a practicing artist and Illustrator. I produce work which has featured in children’s books, greeting cards and fine art paintings and my work has been exhibited and sold throughout the world.
Join me for a fun-filled course where you will make new friends and learn some exciting new skills. I am confident that I can bring out the artist in anyone. My students regularly say that they learn tips and skills that have helped them to become confident artists and they are always keen to take their art to the next level. All you need is enthusiasm and a have-a-go attitude.
