Learn How To Draw Portraits With Jason Clarke

This 10 week course will focus on drawing the human face, breaking down each facial feature, and learning how to utilise tone to draw more realistically.

Each week, students will work through practical exercises, and have plenty of one-to-one time with Jason.

Classes will run on Monday morning (9:30-12:00) and Monday evening (6:30-9:00). Classes are capped at 10 students per class. You only need to attend once a week during your session time.

You will need an A3 drawing pad, a range of graphite pencils (HB, 2B, 4B, 6B), a putty eraser, a hard eraser, and a sharpener.

Beginner Foundation Course

Aimed at beginners, or those who maybe haven’t picked up a paintbrush for a number of years, our 12 week Beginner Foundation Course is a terrific option. One of the key elements of this course is problem solving: showing you the exact techniques you need to know in order to draw or paint just about anything! So if you’ve ever hit a wall with your art, or wondered how other artists do what they do, this course will give you loads of light bulb “Aha!” moments!

We start with understanding shape, form and tone, before moving into the fantastic world of colour and colour mixing, and complete the course through paintings of your own choice. Students often end each of their sessions in awe of what they have achieved, feeling confident and excited to paint and draw each week.

START: Late September 2024

We also include some open discussion about artworks, and culminate the course with a final larger piece of your own choosing.
