The Expressive Portrait: 4 day Easter break

8th/9th & 11th/12th April 2019, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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 life-size portrait in clay working from a clothed sitter.
