With Aidan Doyle

Wednesdays, January 31st & February 7th,

Over two evenings, this course will provide you with a broad understanding of the portrait!

You will learn how to produce a likeness of the subject using charcoal, carbon pencils and pastels on paper. You will be taken through some of the fundamental principles of representational drawing and various application techniques. 

At the end of the course, you will leave not only with your beautiful drawings, but with confidence and a newly developed artistic style. These skills are transferable to apply to other aspects of your personal work!
