Course Outline


Week 1: The Basics 

This week we will focus on setting out composition with a focus on proportions, scale, and basic sketching using pencil and charcoal


Week 2: Tone and Value 

This week we will look at how to create 3 dimensional portraits using tone and value. Applying a range of shading techniques in monochrome pastel and charcoal. 


Week 3: Colour with Pastel 

This week we will move on to experiment with colour using pastels to develop a first stage skin tone palette. Identifying and replicating tonal changes in the face and using a range of shading and blending techniques 


Week 4 & 5: Final Painting 

Finally we will move onto our masterpiece painting! Choosing a photo (bring from home or select from studio library). Students can chose to work with Acrylic or Oil painting and will be taught the fundamentals of mixing, mediums and application. The first week will focus on the initial sketch and underpainting stage. Our last session will begin with colour mixing to identify the right palette and working together on adjustments and building up layers to complete our paintings. 

There will be a chance to discuss varnishing and hanging and  participants will take home final pieces
