A Day of Portrait Drawing and Painting

Day of week:
St Faiths Adult Education Centre, Maidstone
Mixed Level
10:00 - 16:00
1 week

This course will be held at St Faiths Adult Education Centre, Maidstone

Working directly from our portrait model and guided by the tutor, the day will start with a series of short warm up drawing exercises and progress towards the afternoon to a longer pose, to enable students to embark on a more developed drawing or painting. The intended focus will be on the practise and development of drawing/painting skills observing the model and creating a " portrait".
