The Drawing Materclass is for pupils who are passionate about art, and about drawing in particular. Led by an expert artist and drawing tutor, pupils will learn how to draw a portrait from life using a range of different techniques and artist's materials including graphite, charcoal, chalk and ink.

The focus will be on demonstrations and on teaching pupils how to draw firectly from a life model (in costume) using the same techniques employed by some of the greatest artists in history, and inspired by works in the gallery's collection.

Pupils will learn how to stretch and prepare paper before going behind-the-scenes tour of art works in store. Then they can start work on their drawings just like real artists, at an easel.

Availability: 6 of 20 places remaining.

Costs: £20 per pupil place; there is no cost for Teachers.


All materials are provided. Pupils will need to bring a packed lunch and their own protective aprons.
