Gain confidence and develop skills to draw the portrait in graphite and charcoal.

Explore drawing from a live model, with opportunities to study from photographs and works by master artists to develop skills and confidence. There is a strong focus on the importance of tone, line, and proportion and you’ll learn how to apply this successfully in a professional and relaxed environment with hands-on tuition. Most importantly, emphasis is placed upon the enjoyment and fulfilment of what drawing from life can bring to students of all levels!

The fundamentals on how to begin and progress through the drawing will be established, bringing confidence when approaching a drawing from life. Personal style and creativity will also be explored. Weekly optional homework tasks will be set with support for any questions and guidance throughout the course.

The course is ideal for those who have attended our Introduction to Drawing & Painting Course previously, and wish to progress further. It will be taught with step-by-step directions and regular tutor advice to build your confidence in drawing with graphite and charcoal.

Do I need to bring anything?
