This workshop provides a unique opportunity to take part in innovative and inspirational self-portrait drawing session. It is a contemporary take on traditional drawing techniques using a camera as a tool to create self-portrait with ideas and concepts inspired by your own ID card photos.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn observational drawing skills and experiment with a variety of media. They will have the chance to draw their own ID photos that are to be taken on the day and provided at the start of the workshop. The drawing will reproduce the photo but also use imaginative ways to restructure the work. Participants will learn to work with Graphite Powder, on high quality paper, hand made brushes, props, and with a range of drawing materials/techniques to make inspired drawings and gain insight into this specific technique.

This is a unique opportunity to learn how to apply a technique to your subjects – with a guide along the way.  In addition you can bring your own drawings in any stage of completion, you can even bring work that you previously thought was finished and you will get a chance to discuss the progress of the work and get advice that will make it really pop out of the page.

All levels of ability are welcome.

Materials are provided but you can bring any additional materials that you wish to use.
