with Lexi Strauss
This 4 week course aims to offer students individual support and advice with their developing painting and/or drawing practices – through portraiture.
Students will be encouraged to explore and develop their own styles – experimenting with a broad range of techniques and wide variety of media (eg- oils, acrylics, watercolour, egg tempera, pen and ink, charcoal and pencil, etc) as required. You will be encouraged to experiment with various ‘limited colour palettes’ to aid and develop your understanding of colour theory and mixing, whilst observing other artists portraiture styles, for individual inspiration
Portrait models will be your subjects throughout the course, with some models continuing for multiple weeks to allow for in depth studies.
Students will also be encouraged to continue their practices at home, with plenty of individual support and advice about techniques they can practice in their own time.
Basic materials – acrylic paint, brushes, palettes, paper, pencils and charcoal, are supplied, but please do feel free to bring your own materials as required.
