Event Details

Investigate, explore, record and develop Portrait art techniques through drawing and painting. Experience the enjoyment of drawing and painting portraits, learning some of the skills and ideas involved, including structure and proportion, tone, colour, pose and expression.
Explore and learn about proportion, asymmetry  and how to convey expression from a model, props - and through the imagination.   Experiment with   pencil, charcoal. Paint, pastel, collage and Monoprint. The tutor will set studio projects, and there will be opportunities for you to develop your own themes and use of materials, once you are more confident.  The course takes place in a dedicated Art studio.

This course runs on  Thursday mornings in Winter, Spring and summer terms.  Each course lasts for 10 weeks. Each session lasts two and a half hours. 

Late starts are available; please enquire.


What will I learn?
By the end of the course, you will have :

  • Explored working methods for drawing and painting and experimental media to convey expression
  • Practiced drawing and painting techniques
  • Produced paintings from observation of primary and secondary source materials, and from the imagination
  • Learned about composition and started to apply this in your work
  • Developed your research skills by using a sketch book
  • Combined a basic understanding of Visual Language, Genres and Artists in a Contemporary, Global and Art Historical context, to help your studio practice.


What are the entry requirements?
This course is open to anyone aged 19 years and above. Otherwise, there are no formal entry requirements, only your enthusiasm!

Is this the right course for me?
This is a mixed level class, and the course is suitable for beginners or learners with a basic level of drawing and painting skills, and all those who have a keen interest in wanting to develop these individually and as a member of a class.  We encourage you to bring some of your own previous art work to help us better understand your skills when you are starting out.

What can I do after this course?
Our learners go on to use their skills in their lives in many different ways; some go on to sell their work and develop a small business. This course can be built on, as it is repeated for three terms during the year – or why not develop a new skill such as monoprint or watercolour. Learners are encouraged to show their work in local and online galleries, fairs and exhibitions.

What else do I need to know?
You should bring an apron.
There is also a small material charge per course.
We expect you to attend every session.
