Drawing Faces at The National Portrait Gallery

NEW!!!

Working from the marble busts and paintings, you’ll be drawing faces at the National Portrait Gallery; this course focuses on helping you to capture the character and emotion in a face. You’ll learn to break down the features and spacial relationships involved in the face into forms that you understand and then can recreate with accuracy. We will be working in a range of materials (coloured papers, dark and light pencils and graphite sticks) and as usual the focus will be on helping you to see form and shade and capture both photorealistic realism and impressionistic similarity.

The day starts at 10.15 and finishes at 5.15 and as usual there is a break for lunch between 1.15 and 2.15.
