Portraiture Workshop 21-23 August (Week Five) ADULTS

Portraiture Workshop 21-23 August (Week Five) ADULTS

What will I learn in this 3 day Portraiture workshop? Capturing the look and personality of another person is a challenging, completely absorbing activity. In this workshop you will go through the stages necessary to accomplish a completed portrait, in your own way, with the guidance and support of tutor, Mary Treherne.

You will explore the use of traditional observational methods working directly from the clothed/draped model, and learn how to paint portraits using a media of your choice. In depth guidance will help you develop your compositional and observational skills.

On day 1, you will start with 45 minutes of short life poses which focus on key skills before moving on to develop your final piece. This workshop is designed for all levels of ability.

Workshops explained: The Sequential Development of Creativity
Art development applies the same school philosophy of committing to developing the individual’s abilities through specialist tutoring and applying a process of learning using the building blocks of art making. Adult students bring with them a developed personality, personal knowledge, experience and defined opinions that demands individual attention. The sequential development of creativity empowers the student to progress at their own pace through the art leaning journey and progress is often mapped through a sketch book-based annotation approach.
