AboutThis course is intended to develop students' ability to represent the human head. Suitable for all levels of experience, and an opportunity to build a body of work around a single subject, the emphasis of the course is on developing drawing and painting skills through a practical approach to the study of portraiture. Working directly from the head/model/person, the basis of this study will initially be founded in drawing, focusing on investigative and analytical studies. These will evolve into approaches with increased expressive potential, and, moving into colour, it's interaction, relativity, and role in the articulation of space and form. These structured, developmental studies, together with an exploration and the preparation of supports and materials will lead into a final three days of sustained painting.
Activities throughout will be supported by slidetalks, informal discussion, group critiques and individual tuition delivered by a range of figurative artists.
