Explore portraiture painting with the guidance of artist Luke Thompson on this one day workshop.

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 early career artists or beginners who would like to progress from drawing to using paints in their portraits. The course will be taught with step-by-step directions and regular tutor advice to build your confidence in painting.

  • Do I need to bring anything?

    Participants will need to bring their own canvas paper or a 16x20 inch canvas board to paint onto. The Art House will provide easels, drawing boards, paper, acrylics, palettes and brushes etc. If you have any of your own paints and drawing materials you wish to use feel free to bring these along with you. We recommend bringing an apron or wearing old clothes to avoid getting mucky.

  • 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 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. 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.

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. Please note that Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

Bookings cannot be transferred between courses however bookings can be transferred to another person in the event that you are unable to attend on the day.

In the event that The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
