November 8th

Portrait Drawing with Hester Berry

Date/Time: Sunday, November 8th - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Price: £60

Medium: Pencil

In this workshop students will work on how to look objectively at the face, removing barriers of presumption and foreknowledge. You will draw from a model, starting with simple shapes to build up the form of the face, drawing on the use of construction lines. Hester will show you how to use devices that aid measuring distances and angles, and work to get an accurate structure. Students will then learn about tone, which will add volume and life to the work. This observation-based approach is the best way to get a likeness in your portrait drawing, and can be applied to subjects such as life drawings and still life, improving your drawing in general. The class is suitable for any level of ability, whether you are a complete beginner or just looking to hone your technique and improve certain aspects of your discipline.

Landscape Painting in Oils with Hester Berry

Date/Time: Monday, November 16th - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Price: £60

Medium: Oil

This workshop is a guide to making an oil painting in the studio. You will look at how best to gather source material, then how to get started on a final painting. After a brief demonstration, students will begin their own painting. We will look at how one might begin on a ‘blank canvas’, how to build up a work paying attention to tone and colour, how to spot problems along the way and some possible finishing touches. This ‘alla prima’ approach will mean that you hopefully go home with a finished oil painting at the end of the day.
