Drawing and Painting The Human Form for Beginners or Improvers

Course outline

This course is perfect if you would like to learn or improve your skills in drawing and painting the human form - both portraits and figures.

You will develop or improve a number of different drawing and painting techniques, using a variety of media and materials. We will study at a range of subjects using the human form as our inspiration, looking at portraits, individual elements such and hands and hair, and whole figures. We will use accurate human proportion and will take inspiration from different artists and styles.

You can expect:

  • Tutor demonstrations of skills and techniques, detailed step-by-step guides and a range of useful handouts and information resources.
  • Opportunity to create artworks during each session.
  • Individual help and advice from the tutor during each session with feedback and encouragement throughout.

You can view the fantastic creative works of our students on our Creative Showcase website below.
