Term 1 Principles of Drawing

The principles taught in the first term are the foundation of traditional art techniques.

First we need to learn how to observe and describe what we see. The exercises in each lesson are specifically designed to improve your observational skills. At the end of the term we will be putting all the steps together producing a fully rendered portrait.



Term 2 Rendering

In the second term we will be focusing on the structure of the head. We need to create a basic structure before adding the features. Think of the skull itself as the structure and the rest as merely trimmings.

The exercises below are designed to improve your observation skills and decision making process when tackling a portrait.



Term 3 Interpretation

In this term we will be focusing on style. Looking towards some of the masters for inspiration. By imitating artists such as Sergeant we can learn the poetical language used to describe the visual world which will help to enrich your own individual expression.
