How to create a portrait - free live creative sessons Creation Station TV

Discover how to create a portrait. We ran Junior Portrait of the year seasons for SKY Arts and we shared a range of top tips to help children of all ages learn to draw a portrait. 

You will need;

Paper, pencil, a ruler and if you have a mirror that will be helpful too! 

Draw an oval and divide the oval into sections as per the video. 

Draw the eyes at the midway point of the oval. Add the other features onto the oval and notice where the features all sit on the sections of the oval.

Experiment by using different materials, Once you have the structure in place you can start to add shading, colour and textures.  Enjoy!

Excellent. Our pack was dropped off and then collected from us. And our finished product was delivered back to us. Very pleased with our creation. Will definitely do again.

Xmas craft session

This was our first mother and baby session since my little boy Archie was born at the end of June. With this rubbish Covid stopping so many if not all baby sessions that I was hopping to be able to take my little boy to whilst off on mat leave has stopped us. Creation station was lots of fun to socialise with other baby mother and also make memorable gifts for us to keep for his 1st Xmas. Alexis was very welcoming and helpful the whole time, we also enjoyed a cuppa tea and some cake in with the price which is brilliant. Hope to be able to attend lots more with my little boy soon. A big thank you !
