Raising funds for TURF

Raising funds for TURF

As part of Cheltenham Prep's fundraising for TURF, Jacob Sutton gave a portrait Masterclass at the Prep. He gave a fascinating insight into the world of charcoal portraiture and shared his images of the people of Kabul, Afghanistan and a Russian school in Prozorovo, where he was Artist in Residence. Those attending the Masterclass were invited to work in pairs and draw one another. The pace was quick and there was a real buzz in the room. Alayne Parsley, Head of Art commented: "It was wonderful to have so many people, mostly apprehensive artists who hadn't drawn since GCSE, or even 'O' Level, having a go. All very relaxed and great fun. I was hugely encouraged by the warmth and support for such an event. Hopefully this will be the first of many!"
