Human Portrait drawing workshop with Jacob Gourley, Sat 15 June 2024, 10-4pm, £126

Working with a life human portrait model is demanding but very rewarding and satisfying. The portrait workshop offers structure and helps mastering the principals of this subject with the emphasis to let each student apply their own working and style.

You will learn how to get the proportions, orientation and structure of the head right. We will introduce you to the basic principles and the preliminary stages of rendering a portrait. We will explain proportional guidelines focusing on the structure of the head, observing the effects of light and shade and the visual challenges it creates. You will work in drawing and acrylic mediums.

The course is run in small groups of max 10 and there is plenty of guidance from the teaching artist. All levels welcome.

You will learn:
• how to use drawing mediums and acrylic paint
• how to achieve different marks with the different mediums
• how to mix the right colour
