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 this workshop 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?

    The Art House will provide an easel, board, basic papers and acrylic paints for this workshop. Participants are encouraged to purchase and bring their own oil paints, canvas paper or canvas to achieve greater results.

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.
