Summer School // Painting a Head

From Fayum Mummy Portraits painted over 2,000 years ago to the forthcoming ‘Cezanne Portraits’ exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, depicting what is perhaps most familiar to us - the human face - has challenged artists for many centuries. 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 participate in group discussions. Suitable for all levels.
