Christmas Holiday // Evening Portrait Painting

Over five evenings this course will offer students the opportunity to make paintings from live models, online. The first three days will be spent building an understanding of tone, colour and hue. We will make one painting per evening with a focus on developing colour mixing skills, starting with monochrome on the first day, moving to two colours and then a limited palette by the third. Students will have the opportunity to work from a sustained pose using the full primary palette in the final two sessions. Each session will be accompanied with exemplars from artists old and contemporary including the Fayum portraits, Rembrandt, Edvard Munch, Gwen John, Alice Neal, Salman Toor and many more.  Suitable for all levels.


Unfortunately, we do not offer concessions on our holiday courses.

All of our course rates are subsidised and we also offer a comprehensive concessions scheme on term time courses. View all course fees and concessions.
