In this two-day workshop, participants will have hands on practice in drawing caricatures- is a portrait that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person or thing. Caricatures can be insulting or complimentary and are commonly used in editorial cartoons. It is actually quite an ancient art form and some of the earliest examples are found in the works of Leonardo da Vinci. You'll learn the basics of caricature- how to invent humorous characters, capture an expression, draw bodies for personality types and when to simplify or exaggerate. Sign up today and have lots of fun without the pressure of still-life drawing!

Presenting Portraiture Series       
Presenting Portraiture is a series conceived in conjunction with a two-part exhibition featuring portraits of Peranakan Chinese. The first part Dressing the Baba was held at NUS Baba House till 31 July 2013, whilst the current exhibition Inherited and Salvaged: Family Portraits from the Straits Chinese Collection runs till 6 July 2014 at NUS Museum.

Peranakan portraits represent an emerging area of collecting interest and this talk series explores a range of themes, concepts and ideas surrounding the making, collecting and functions of such artworks, including artistic practice and studio processes; pictorial conventions; collecting patterns; and reflections on the social milieu.
