Spending our time in the beautiful and picturesque Ballarat Botanical Gardens well learn the basics of building a portrait. Utilising the famous 'Prime Minister' walkway you can choose your favourite bust to work with. I'll take you through the basics of creating a portrait inclusive of shading techniques to create form and depth. Starting with how to determine the proportions of a face and getting the profiles right. You'll have a number of different mediums to work with including charcoal, pens and pencils. Having your own sketch pad to take home and continue with building on the skills we cover. It's all about learning and having fun. I'm focussed on passing on my knowledge and spending an enjoyable day together doing something that I love and hope you will too!!!
