Course description

Learn how to draw a portraiture in Sydney.

The human face is endless in its variation and possibilities. When we look at each other, we see ourselves. We look, connect and understand. Artists have created portraits of bliss, anguish, hatred, hostility and happiness by representing the human head and this practice has continued through the many historical artistic movements.

Whether you are drawing for the very first time or have some experience, our tutors will help to develop your skill and technique.

Three life models will pose during this course to give you the optimum learning experience.
