Portraiture for Printmaking

September 22, 2021

Portraiture for Printmaking with Yillian Basser.

6 - 8pm Thursday 4th, 11th and 18th November 2021 at the HIP Studio, Bellerive.

Over the history of art until now, the subject of portraiture continues to engage artists from all walks of life. It inspires empathy and connection, at the same time challenging skill and expression.

In this three week workshop we will journey from the basics of drawing the head and face to the complexity of detailing the features. We will look at how other printmakers have interpreted the portrait, explore beautiful mark-making and consider what aspects of the face make each subject so distinctive.

This course is suitable for beginner students of portraiture and those who would like to refresh or deepen their portraiture practice.

Some drawing materials will be provided. Feel free to bring any of your own materials that you would like to use. We will be providing; pencils, paper, erasers, markers and charcoal.

$130 HIP members / $150 Non-members for the full three evenings.
