Workshop: Christine Pike: Face to Figure - Portraiture in Charcoal to Life Modelling with Clay

10:00am-5:00pm Saturday 15 October 2016
FREE workshop

A two part workshop presented by the Upper Hunter Artists Network and the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre.

In the morning session Christine will guide you through portrait drawing with charcoal. Christine sketched many portraits in preparation for her Coal Miners exhibition at the Arts Centre in 2015. Many portrait sketches were completed underground where it was difficult to see both the subject matter and the drawing itself.

In the afternoon session you will take life drawing to a new level as Christine guides you in capturing the dynamism of the human figure using clay.
