Our friendly, experienced and approachable tutors will teach you all the best tricks to really get to grips with the wonderful world of drawing.
This course is an introduction to the basic principles of drawing faces and portraits. We’ll spend the day in the inspiring setting of the National Portrait Gallery, sketching the marble busts and statues of historical figures. Our friendly, experienced and approachable tutors will teach you techniques to draw portraits, utilising line, tone and proportion.
We’ll use a range of materials to explore portraits in a range of styles - with fun quick studies in an impressionistic style and longer studies that will use guidelines and measurements to make more realistic drawings.
But it’s not all work, work, work, as this is a Frui day course after all! We’ll also enjoy a lovely lunch break (either your own packed lunch or bought from the cafe) and have a truly fun, inspiring and sociable day together consisting of beautiful surroundings and jargon-free, down to earth tuition.
