Youth Masterclasses / 8 - 16 years

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind - Dr Seuss

Creativity is such an important vehicle for self-expression, for communication and for self- awareness. As your young artists find their place in the modern world, they're going to need some tools to help them decipher it.

In drawing, if you can master the sphere, the cylander and the cube, you have the core skills needed to record ANYTHING - from a still life object, to a landscape or a portrait.

These basic shapes form the core of all form and in this Masterclass you'll gain a whole technical toolkit to help you record them - from learning to control a range of basic art materials, to understanding how light hits an object, to measuring, proportion and much more.

This technical booster will teach you how to see an object properly and will incorporate photography techniques to improve accuracy.  A teacher at secondary level for over 8 years, Ellie has a good understanding of what is and isn't taught in school and will be there to help plug those gaps, challenge misconceptions and get you feeling confident in recording from observation.

From working with soft shading, to building up texture using cross-hatching and through drawing challenges such as 'how to draw glass' you'll come away with a clearer understanding of how to develop your technical skill and to really show the world through your eyes.

How do we capture the perfect portrait? How do I draw a nose, eyes, the mouth? How do I capture the essence of the person I see before me?

Join SAS founder Ellie Green for a 3 hour intensive Masterclass with a focus on recording yourself or the people you know and showing the very best of them in the process.

In a world of endless selfies, we'll start the session by examining the photographic portrait and self portrait - using studio equipment and both natural light and artificial light to shoot some soulful and well-lit photographic portraits to work with later in the session.

This will be followed by a practical technical drawing and painting workshop, exploring some of the best ways to record as well as underpinning with some strong technical skills to record in proportion and with accuracy.

In the last stage of the session students will create a response - building on what they have learned to create an original Portrait outcome of their own design.
