Porthmeor Art Collective – Drawing Faces

Drawing / Figure – Materials included

Book Selected Date

Following Steven’s demonstrations, learn the right proportions of the face and then build features into it that you can shape to become individual.  Let him guide you in helping the drawings become more 3D by adding shading and tone.

By the end of the session you will have some drawings you are pleased with. You’ll leave the session with a new way of approaching drawing that you can practice  with any subject: observational drawing, illustration, cartoons and anime.

For young artists aged 11-16, this group helps young people connect with their creativity and get to know contemporary art practices.

 We are happy to continue to offer limited FREE Scholarship places for those on low income. Please contact Cat Lee Youth Arts Manager for a Scholarship application form to apply  [email protected].

My work is about more than the landscape, it’s about the sense of being in it. The atmosphere, the light and the colour. For me it is about drawing and painting these bits of our landscape that are normally edited out of our perception and experience.

At St Ives School of Painting we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Our Trustees, staff and volunteers share this commitment. See our Safeguarding Policy under our Quick Links in the footer.
