Course Information

What will I be learning?

You will learn about the proportions of the face and how to measure them from observation.

You will learn the principles of achieving a likeness.

How will I know how I am progressing during the course?

There is no formal exam, although there is continual evaluation throughout the course.

Towards the end of each session you will use a DerbyLearn forum to record what you have done in class and comment on how you think you got on.  Before the next session your tutor will reply with their feedback.  This is a very good method of recording your own progress, reflecting on the session and a great way to receive motivation from your tutor.
