Exploring self-portraiture

This week, our National Saturday Club Members continued to refine their Self-Portraiture project.

Our 2D members, taught by tutor Sarah Davis and assisted by Graduate Diploma Arts: Carving: Woodcarving & Gilding student Henry Brown, began to paint their medieval illuminations. Using size 00 brushes, members used gouache paint to begin the base layer of their images. Next week, they will add final touches such as highlights, shadows and outlines.

Our 3D members, taught by tutor Tom Merrett and assisted by BA (Hons) Fine Art student Louis Power, used plastilin to sculpt a bust of themselves. The members created brilliant self-portraits, which next week will be cast using the clay and plaster.

The works are looking amazing, and we are very excited to see the finished results next week.

Thank you to our members for working so diligently and putting so much care into their work.
