Explore and learn drawing and painting techniques that aim to build skill levels in illustrating realistic portraits. Students will mainly work with graphite and watercolour pencils, while exploring a variety of drawing and painting techniques aimed at creating a realistic portrait from a subject of your choice. This virtual course will start with heavily, process-based sketchbook work and will work towards refining skills that build confidence in your artistic abilities of portraiture.

"Thank you Sadko for the amazing learning experience this past week. My enjoyment of, and commitment to learning Watercolour has never been greater. I feel that I made more progress in this one week than I achieved in three other painting classes, combined! I look forward to taking other classes with you.” - Martin
