Want to learn the skill & techniques to draw a live model? Come along to this course where you can begin to draw the human head in portrait form. Your Tutor is Rebecca Mills, an experienced creative art tutor who teaches drawing and painting.

Course details

What will I learn?

During the course you will learn to observe and identify what you see and use these observational and practical skills to render the head in portrait.

The tutor will provide various demonstrations, and there will be a range of display material including a variety of books and literature available to help you. Helpful handouts will also be available, and you will have dedicated one-to-one time with the tutor.
