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.

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.
