Classical drawing and painting are not so much individual styles but rather an approach to drawing and painting that favours order, beauty, harmony and completeness. They follow principles that emerged from ancient classical civilizations and rely on methods and techniques that render subject matter in a realistic style.

This 2-day workshop introduces you to drawing the classical portrait in pencil and charcoal, covering all of the technical and aesthetic aspects of portrait drawing, from the structure and anatomy of facial features to achieving likeness and creating expression.

Tutor Adrian Cooke of Classical Art Atelier comes from a family of visual artists who influenced and mentored him through his formative years. Largely self-taught, he has also studied part-time with Vetruvian Fine Art Studio in Chicago and with Brian Smyth of the Angel Academy of Art, Florence.
