Sneak Peek

Description

Working from the marble busts and paintings, you will be learning how to draw a face at the National Portrait Gallery; the perfect location for drawing portraits. Many people struggle with face drawing, so we will show you how to draw a realistic face in no time at all!

You will learn to break down the features and special relationships involved in a face into forms that you understand and can then recreate with accuracy. We will be working in a range of materials (coloured papers, dark and light pencils and graphite).

Drawing Faces @ National Portrait Gallery

We came in a group of four and you inspired us all so much that two of us went back the next week to do more drawing and myself and Muna are going again next weekend for the same. Thanks so much, it was a fantastic day.

Hi Rosa. Just wanted to thank you for a great day last Saturday at The V & A. Although my drawing was pitiful I thoroughly enjoyed the day and thank you for your very helpful tips and endless patience! We had such a great group on Saturday and Im sure you have inspired us all. Once again, many thanks.
