5 Week Course Fridays 6-8pm Starts Friday 15th February
"A great tutor who has really helped me develop my drawing and portraiture skills. I highly recommend Cardiff Artspace for future courses" Chris
In this 5 week course you’ll learn essential techniques for drawing portraits. You’ll learn how to represent proportions, draw facial features and represent values through shading. You’ll learn through a series of small studies to practice techniques, leading to larger full scale drawings where you’ll put these skills into practice. We’ll also cover more expressive techniques to help you create a sense of character and personality to your portraits.
We keep our class sizes small to ensure you get lots of individual focus. This also gives us the chance to tailor the course to the needs of the group and you will have the opportunity to feed into what you'd like to learn.
All materials included.

Kate is an artist working from her studio in Cardiff. She draws on traditional techniques but applies her own instinctive style using glazes, drips and textures to combine the representational with the abstract. She was recently shortlisted for Jackson’s Painting Prize. Recent exhibitions include The Senedd (National Assembly for Wales), The Riverfront Gallery, Fringe Arts Bath and Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.

How to find us
Our Studio is based in Meanwhile House, just a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central station. We're just off Curran Embankment. From Penarth Road take the turning between Big Yellow Storage and Kwik Fit and we're the first turning on the left.
Daytimes (until 6pm): The carpark outside the building is reserved for staff only until 6pm (including weekends) and you need a permit to park here. The nearest street parking is just over the bridge along the river on either Taff Embankment or Taffs Mead Embankment. This is charged with meters so do check signs but it is a very short walk from here to the studio. We are also just a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central train station so easily accessible by public transport. If you do require parking on site we have two visitor permits that can be used by students with prior arrangement but visitor parking is limited and cannot be guaranteed.
Evenings (6pm onwards): The carpark on site is available to visitors from 6pm. If you do arrive early for your class we'd advise you wait with your car until 6pm just in case of inspection.
Access Our studio is on the first floor, accessed via a staircase. Please contact us if you have any access requirements. We will always do our best to accommodate but due to the restrictions of the building this is not always possible.
