    Course information

    During the five day course taught by Stephanie Kullberg, students learn and apply the fundamental principles of representational drawing and various charcoal application techniques, creating a finished portrait drawing from scratch. The course aims to familiarise students with the sight-size method as an efficient way of measuring and assessing one’s work.

    This is the perfect introduction to portraiture, especially if you are considering doing a Portrait Painting Masterclass at a later stage and can be paired with Stephanie's Portrait Painting Masterclass during the following week.

    A minimum number of 5 students is required for this short course to run.

    The course will address:

    • Proportions of the head and face
    • Value and tones
    • Composition
    • Using the Sight-Size method
    • Drawing techniques
    • Recreating the effect of light on paper

    The Facilities

    Each class is limited to 8 students working from 2 models in Sight-Size.  The workshop room is located within the main school of The London Atelier of Representational Art. Each model is lit with individual professional photographic lighting, which provides a steady, unchanging environment from which to observe all elements of portrait drawing.

    The End Result

    You will have created a carefully observed and realistic portrait from life. You will be familiar with the fundamentals of portrait drawing. These are transferable skills which you will be able to apply to your personal work.
