GCSE and A Level Artists

A Masterclass in portraiture.

GCSE and A Level students were treated to a portrait-painting masterclass on Thursday 21st November when professional artist and art tutor Vicky Saumarez visited to guide students through the intricacies and techniques of portrait painting.  This was no theory lesson – the students learnt by doing and by critiquing the work they undertook.

    

Ms Saumarez trained at the Florentine realist drawing and painting academy of Studio Cecil Graves under the tuition of Daniel Graves (Florence Academy) and Charles Cecil (Charles Cecil Studios).  She works in her studio during the day and teaches art to adults in the evening.
