About this course

This Art course will introduce you to the process of portraiture through a variety of mediums including pencil, pastel, acrylic and oil paints.
Working from both photographic references and life models, you will explore how to approach proportions, tone, light, form and colour. Each project is based on a particular technique, subject matter or a style/genre of artwork. This will include looking at historical, modern, contemporary and global artwork. Tuition is on an individual basis with relevant demonstrations to improve your drawing and painting skills.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
See improvement in your drawing skills.
Make choices about subject matter and composition, through the use of reference material and observational drawings.
Use a wider range of materials including pencil, pastel, acrylic and oil paints.
Explore a variety of mark making techniques.
Be aware of and work to relevant Health and Safety guidelines.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. You will undertake critical reflection and evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance/develop personal skills.

What do I need to bring with me?

If you are a new student and have no materials please wait for your tutor's advice on what to buy. However, you should bring an A4 sketchbook of good quality cartridge paper, preferably with a hard cover and ring bound and a variety of pencils. You will need to provide your own materials and these will vary in cost according to the course requirements. If you have any materials/equipment that might be appropriate please bring them with you.

What can I do next?

A further Portraiture or Life Drawing course.

What do I need to join the course

Just an interest in working in paint to create a likeness of a face and an interest in understanding how portraiture has developed over the centuries.

It is important to note that art courses are practical and require a degree of manual dexterity for you to participate fully and get the most out of the course.
