While I was away for a month placement in the Russian Academy of Arts, our teen group had a great time doing a portrait workshop with Terry Hunt. Amazing results! Well done everyone.
We painted autumn last week, and learned a lot about aerial perspective.
Our Monday Atelier was drawing plaster casts for the last two weeks. Not all managed to tame the subject, but everybody tried hard. We’ve got two winners who successfully finished the marathon.
Working on 2-point perspective and tonal drawing
Last Monday we were extremely lucky to watch a painting demonstration by a professional artist. Terry Hunt, an established portraitist, gave us a fantastic step-by-step demo with all the tips and tricks on how to create an expressive portrait from a photograph. Invaluable experience! Thanks a lot, Terry!
Older children are moving on to explore human face and figure. We studied how to built a realistic portrait and tried our hands on manga.
