Advanced Caricature


Starting 16th April I will be taking on students for a 10 week online course entitled 'Advanced Caricature'. My main focus for the course will be sketching as a means to producing final artwork that is original and individual in style. Only through sketching can we find our own true voice. It will also include building an awareness of structure and form, preparation for a sketch, capturing emotion, use of values and capturing light and dark. There will also be some Photoshop painting, so access to Photoshop software will be required. Painting techniques will be discussed, but the main goal is to make sketching second nature. If the sketch is good, everything else will follow!

The course is open to all levels of ability.

Students will be given an introductory critique on a current piece of artwork, followed by weekly assignments and critique on the subsequent homework handed in. Each weekly video tutorial will be accompanied by a video critique of the last weeks assignment.

Materials required: Pencils (all grades), paper (including sketchbook), Photoshop and a decent scanner.

Deadline for enrolment is 9th April, lessons start 16th April. There are 10 places available. To enrol, please click 'Buy Now' below. Any questions can be emailed to paulmoyse@wackyfeatures.co.uk.

And finally, all students will get a free copy of my book 'The Art of Caricature' upon enrolment. I look forward to having you on board.
