EXPLORING THE HUMAN HEAD is a 4 week workshop for students wanting to explore working with the human head and portraiture.  Predominately drawing based, you will explore the fundamentals necessary to understand the structure of the head and on achieving a likeness so that you can work with more confidence from both life and photographs.

You’ll learn structures and strategies through a mix of demonstrations and set exercises, and put it all into practice!  Please note this class is now running online as 4 x 2 hour classes on zoom, with the first session running for an extra 30 minutes so we can go through how we use zoom and Slack.
