Portraits in Oil Paint Weekend Quick Start Art Workshop
9 February @ 10:00 am - 10 February @ 5:00 pm£150
A 2-day workshop designed to immerse you in the creation of a portrait from start to finish. Plus, ALL materials are provided for the day, making it perfect for someone wanting to try oil paints for the first time, or if you just want to travel-light. Simply arrive with a thirst to learn and wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit messy. Everything else is laid out for you in a relaxed studio environment, with the emphasis firmly on having fun!
On the Saturday we’ll go through the basics of setting up a self-portrait and the step-by-step process that you’ll follow in order to produce your painting. The aim of the first day is to produce an initial gesture drawing and then follow it up with a tonal study.
Sunday is all about colour! Working over the top of your dry tonal study, you’ll then be guided through the 12-step colour wheel, taught how to release your colour and how to push your painting towards its completion. The focus is on process and giving you a firm foundation of knowledge.
The workshop is accessible for the complete beginner to oil paints, but results can be dependent on the level of individual’s drawing experience. Don’t worry though, the emphasis of the workshop is on having fun with this exciting medium and starting you off on your artistic journey on the right foot!
Price: £150 including ALL materials for the weekend. 10% discount for returning students.
