    course information

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

    This course would work very well as an basic introduction to portraiture, if you are considering doing a Portrait Painting Masterclass at a later stage.

    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. The model is lit with individual professional photographic lighting, which provides a steady, unchanging environment.

    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.

    Materials

    Please note that specific materials are required for this course. You will receive a complete list on application.

     

    about Lucy Fyffe

    Lucy received a Foundation in Art and Design at Wimbledon College of Art and a BA(Hons) in English Literature and Language at the University of Oxford. Originally she had been accepted to the Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford University, to study Fine Art but she reapplied at the end of her first year due to the lack of skills-based training. Having given up hope on art, Lucy discovered LARA quite by accident and was a full-time student three days later.  Lucy's portrait "Megan" was recently exhibited in the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual Exhibition.
