Join us in the studios of Gray's School of Art to concentrate on 4 days of portrait painting.

You will have an opportunity to gain tuition and experience in the subject from a successful portraitist artist.

Working directly from a professional model in the studio, an experience tutor will be on hand to encourage you to enhance your:

• Observational study of the sitter.
• Compositional arrangement.
• Paint application skills.
• Tonal appreciation.
• Colour mixing techniques.

Advice on the use of particular painting materials will be given on an individual basis. Instruction will be specific to the chosen medium.

You will be encouraged to share your study of portraiture to the group, exchange ideas, as well as critique your practice and creative investigations during the course.

Methods of delivery include: demonstrations, individual/group discussion and studio-based practice.
Students are taught by specialist staff who will offer practical advice and instruction together with personal encouragement in discovering individual creative skills. Students will receive general instruction and one-to-one tuition tailored to suit their personal level of experience and ability.
