Event description
Explore portraiture painting with the guidance of portrait artist Richard Kitson on this one day workshop.

About this Event

You’ll paint a portrait from a reference image following step by step demonstrations. The aim will be to construct the portrait with a focus on facial proportions, starting with mid and dark tones and adding details and highlights as the painting progresses.

Who is the course for?

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those who would like to progress from drawing to using paints in their portraits. The course will be taught in a step by step way with tutor advice and guidance to build your confidence in drawing & painting.

Do I need to bring anything?

Students will need to bring some basic drawing materials and some oil or acrylic paints to work with. Some materials will be provided including easels & paper to work on.

Working Safely

We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to come and join in without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants and a larger space to allow plenty of room for social distancing.

In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering.

We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the ‘new normal’.

If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing info@the-arthouse.org.uk.

Course Booking Terms and Conditions

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date.

We can offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend due to Covid-19.
