DRAWING PORTRAITS – FACES & VIEWPOINTS
Join us for a series of portraiture drawing sessions. Whether you are new to portraiture or drawing regularly, this series is a masterclass in drawing faces. You’ll learn to draw faces from three different angles; from the front, from the side and from a three-quarter view. Enjoy a fully immersive hour of portraiture for an hour per week.
