Portraiture Weekend Workshop
An opportunity to develop your portrait drawing and painting skills from live models at Richard Kitson’s studio in Barnsley.
Portrait artist Richard Kitson (as seen on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2018) is opening up his studio for a full weekend workshop exploring portraiture. Ideal for intermediate to advanced artists, Saturday will explore drawing using an academic measuring approach in pencil followed by looser techniques in charcoal and pastels. The Sunday will explore the direct painting technique, blocking in overall tonality and facial structure. Participants will then have time to develop their own painting approach with 1-1 support from Richard.
Materials can be provided but please bring your favourite materials too. 20x16 inches recommend maximum support size. Participants are advised to use oil or acrylic paints.
Please bring a packed lunch for the lunch breaks, refreshments will be provided throughout the weekend.
Please also be aware that Richard's studio is on the top floor of the building up two flights of stairs, currently there is no lift.
