This 8 week course has been developed to help beginners on the challenging journey of learning how to draw portraits. This course will focus on loosening up, having fun and not perfection. It is totally okay to make mistakes. Members will have the freedom to draw whoever they choose. If the preference is to draw portraits of pets, well that’s okay also. Grandchildren and fellow students are always favourite drawing subjects. Students will need to bring to class a selection of graphite pencils (hb, 2b, 4b), kneaded eraser (Montemarte), A3 or A4 drawing pad, willow charcoal (thin ones), wet wipes or rag,
pencil sharpener and reference ‘face’ photos of family members, friends, pets, etc.
The tutor will advise members of all requisites required for the class. A list of these requisites is also available at Reception.
