Join award-winning local artist Lee-Anne Corrigan in this special step-by-step foundational portrait drawing workshop using pastels. This beautiful and versatile medium has been described as like 'painting and drawing at the same time'. Experienced local artist and teacher Lee-Anne will step you through developing the initial drawing. Using lines, measuring marks and selected tones you will see the portrait emerge as the eye sees, the mind perceives and the hand draws a clothed life model. It's easier than you might think!
This workshop is perfect for beginners wanting to try something new through to more experienced pastel artists.
Workshop places are limited, ensuring you receive the individual assistance you need.
