Event Description

Join Caitlin Heslop, London based artist and founder of Barely Drawing, for a portrait drawing course, where you will explore expressive mark making, tone and form. Using our own reflections as our inspiration, Caitlin will lead you through a 4 week course, consisting of quick drawing exercises and more sustained studies. Portraiture is a theme covered by a vast number of artists and is a great way to incorporate observational drawing with expressive mark making.

The classes are suitable for all abilities, and each class will work as a stand-alone session, or you can attend all four to see your work develop over the month of March!

Suggested materials :

  • Pencils (I usually use 2B or 4B)
  • Paper (I suggest smooth cartridge paper)
  • Sharpener and rubber
  • Mirror
  • Duration: 4 x 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (a recording will be available)

Meet the Host, Caitlin

Caitlin Heslop is a London based artist working predominantly in pencil, pastel and oil paint. Caitlin loves drawing from nature and from memory, this dualistic way of working brings a dreamlike quality to her work. Caitlin set up Barely Drawing in 2016, a drawing collective aimed at gathering individuals together both in person and online to cultivate creativity within community.

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
