    The course includes:

    • using shading to add realism to portraits
    • an introduction to working from life
    • the differences and benefits of short-timed poses for sketches, and longer poses for more refined drawing, and
    • working on toned paper.

    Suitable for ages 15+. No previous drawing experience required.

    Your tutor Alex is an early-career artist who focuses on figurative art and portraiture and graduated from the Adelaide Central School of Art with a Bachelor of Visual Art with Honours in 2016.
