The Expressive Portrait

Monday 8th, Tuesday 9th, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th April 10am-4pm

What makes a successful portrait? Is a convincing likeness achieved by technical skill alone, or are there other, less tangible ingredients? These questions will inform this four day course as we attempt to move beyond likeness to explore the expressive potential of the contemporary portrait. A rest day in the middle of the week offers the chance to maintain momentum over an extended period – while staying fresh and motivated. We will be making a portrait in clay at a scale of your choice, working from a clothed sitter.
