This course is aimed to help students build and refine their portrait drawing and painting skills, whilst developing further facility in the use of oil paint, graphite and charcoal. Alongside improvement of observational skills, there will be a strong emphasis on extracting emotional expression from the work and a more powerful communication in their portrait painting. Students will develop a structural understanding and drawing of the head and face. They will also explore composition, learning from contemporary and historical artists.

Andy James is a self taught artist, based in Kent and has been painting full time since 1987. Andy was elected a member of the Royal Society of Portrait painters in 2002 and became its vice president in 2008. He was winner of the Carroll Foundation Award in 1998 and the Changing Faces Award in 2013.
