Alice Hesketh, Portrait Class 



Portrait Class 

Do you have a fascination with faces? Come and learn about portraiture in a friendly, inclusive class in the centre of Eastbourne with portrait artist and teacher Alice Hesketh.

This six-week course is suitable for beginners and those who wish to learn how to create a realistic portrait using simple drawing techniques.

I shall guide you through the basic principles of how to draw a face, teaching you about scale and proportion in relation to the head. We will have a model for some classes as well as studying our own images to practice observational drawing. Using a variety of materials such as charcoal, ink and pastels will give students the opportunity to experiment with different techniques and create an expressive portrait.
