Christmas Holiday // Painting the Head

Painting portraits has challenged artists for over 2,000 years: The recent Giacometti exhibition at Tate Modern, and Cezanne show at the National Portrait Gallery demonstrate how this enduring fascination continues to thrive, long after the invention of photography. Focusing on the head, this course will offer students the chance to make sustained portrait paintings over two and three day poses. Emphasis will be placed on colour mixing, and understanding how the colours and tones of the model relate to their surroundings. Students will receive one-to-one tuition as well as participating in group discussions. Suitable for all levels.
