Students Before & After
Weekend Workshop
You don't need any previous experience or natural art talent to do this workshop.  In fact sometimes it is much easier to teach someone who has no idea about drawing as you don't come with any previous ideas on how to do things. 

Each student is given lots of one on one attention.

We will start off drawing eyes, mouths & noses using recipes developed by Richard and Diana to make it easy.  This will make drawing these elements a lot easier when you are familiar how they are drawn when we draw straight off photographs.
You will draw 1 - 3 faces over the weekend using the Moore Method of drawing portraits.  Over the past 18 years we have developed our own way of drawing portraits which is easy to learn and simple to apply.  Practice of this process at home will make your portraits get better and better.
