Portrait Drawing in Charcoal

Upcoming Dates:

Wednesday 15th of July / 3:30pm – 6:00pm (GMT) on Zoom / Buy Tickets from £5 – £20

You will learn how to create a portrait in charcoal from scratch. Each stage will begin with a live demonstration – giving you the opportunity to ask questions as you watch me work. I will also use screen-sharing as a way to explain specific principles of drawing the portrait.

We will repeat this process, stage by stage, until you have completed your drawing.

We will then finish the session with a Q&A, giving you a chance to share with me and the rest of the class how you found the experience and ask any final questions to help you with your drawing in the future.

If you want to get a better idea of what we’ll be doing on the workshop, check out this video that shows the whole process.
