Details

For those who wish to improve their portrait work, this is always a most stimulating, challenging and fun week. Working in your own choice of media (watercolours, pastels and/or acrylics), we explore ways to improve drawing skills and capture a likeness through studying the form, features, composition and pose. After the first "warm up" day of drawing exercises we will be working from models all week. Carole is a popular tutor, favoured for her support and understanding. As well as constant individual tuition throughout, there is a group appraisal at the end of each day and a demonstration on several evenings. The aim is for each student to gain a feeling of accomplishment through increased perception and skills, while enjoying the atmosphere of this historic and inspirational setting.

Carole Massey is a popular and versatile tutor who is in her 17th year as an Associate Tutor at Flatford Mill in 2019. She has written many books, appears regularly on the Sky Painting Channel (192) and is a Professional Associate of the Society for All Artists.
