LIFE DRAWING / PORTRAIT PAINTING COURSE

This life drawing and portrait painting art course is aimed at students wishing to focus on the exploration of the human figure. The course tutors will show students how different body features relate to one another, and will hence instruct them on how to represent anatomy, musculature and different poses effectively.

The art teachers will also introduce students to drawing techniques which will ensure the proper representation of each anatomical part from hands, feet, legs and arms to facial features such as eyes, nose, lips, and ears. The use of study skeletons and cast objects will aid the students with the manipulation of tones, textures and volume for fine academic representations of the body.

The presence of life models will enable students to develop their ability to handle light and shade, to represent different body types and to draw musculature in motion.

Suitability

Please note that there are some preliminary foundational skills and knowledge with regular drawing and painting that you will need before successfully approaching the human body. 

Hence why we recommend that beginners sign up for a Beginner's Drawing or Painting course before approaching this course on human anatomy.

This will ensure that you will have all the foundational skills necessary to enjoy this course.

What You Will Achieve Upon Completion of the Course

Students will explore the beauty of the human figure, develop good observation skills, perfect the techniques for portraiture, and learn how to express their inner artist. You will become highly proficient in drawing/painting the human figure with various mediums and in recording different poses in a relatively short time. In particular, you will understand how to portray anatomy accurately, to develop your use of light and tone, and to construct a space through the use of settings and backgrounds. By the end of the course, you will have produced several high quality drawings/paintings to add to your art collection!

HOW CAN WE PROVIDE YOU WITH A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE?

Bespoke Study Plan to Ensure Our Art Course in London Is the Most Suitable for You
During your first art lesson, you will have an introductory session with a dedicated art tutor to help you understand what you need and your skill level. This art lesson allows the tutor to create a personalised study plan and art course structure that will be most suitable for you. This study plan will provide the overall structure of what you should follow and achieve during your course to maximise your results.

We Help You To Learn About the Right Art Materials
During your introductory lesson, the tutor will go through what art materials you need for the art course and how to use them. We recommend buying your art supplies after your introductory lesson. This will avoid you the trouble of mistakenly purchasing the wrong art materials. If you don’t want to purchase your own, we also have our Art Material Packages, all individually designed and assembled for each of our art courses by our tutors which will save you time.

Different Art Tutors from the Best Art Academy
Our tutors designed and created each of our art courses. They are expert and refined art tutors with prodigious backgrounds from the best international academies and universities such as the Royal Academy of Art and Central Saint Martin’s in London, the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and Athens Academy in Greece. Our art tutors have years of experience teaching art students from all over the world. By being able to book art lessons taught by different tutors, you can explore different perspectives and approaches on some critical issues covered in this art course. Our tutors work closely together to provide a coherent structure and experience throughout your time here.

Small Groups with Bespoke Art Tuition
We always limit each of our art classes to less than 10 art students, allowing our teachers to work closely with every student and provide individual guidance. According to each student’s study plan, during each lesson, the teacher will arrange the most suitable subject for you and will teach each student the appropriate techniques.

Flexible Timetable to Let You Choose the Days You Want to Attend
When you purchase a course package (e.g. a 60 art lessons course), it will be transferred to your online account. You will be able to log-in and use your course package to book any available art class (see timetable section below). We have art classes every day, and you can book them at any time. Because you can book the time slots that are most suitable for you, you can also choose your starting date as well.

Flexible Credit System to Save You Money
One lesson will be taken from your package only when you book a class. Therefore, you don’t have to book and use all the lessons immediately, but you can book them as you progress with the art course. The system is just like an oyster card that you use as you go.

Our Tutors Will Update Your Progress on Your Account After Each Lesson
After each art lesson, our tutor will leave internal feedback for other tutors to see. This information briefs art tutors from different time slots on your progress, including what you did in the previous art lessons and what you should do in the upcoming ones. Therefore, even if you leave for a holiday break, when you will be back, all your progress history will be saved there for our tutors to use to resume your art lessons.

Manage Your Bookings from Your Online Account
You can easily cancel, reschedule and book your art lessons all from your online account. Please note that we have a 48H cancellation and reschedule policy. We recommend booking art classes at least 2 days or earlier to guarantee enough availability of seats and to give you enough time if you need to reschedule/cancel the session.
