The workshop is for children aged 5 to 12 and aims to teach them how to draw a portrait.
We will look at different styles and works by celebrated artists such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Picasso.
We will try out a few techniques – and tricks – to draw different expressions and head shapes. There will be lots of drawing, starting with little warm-up exercises, building up to the design of a self-portait – not easy but great fun!
The workshops are for a maximum of 5 children, and all materials (and refreshments) are included in the price.
This will also be an opportunity for children who followed the Tudor tour at the National Portrait Gallery to build on the basic principles they learned therein.
