Life Painting and Portraiture

Gracefield Arts Centre
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

with Katharine Wheeler
Through a series of hour long poses we will be focusing on observational painting, shape, light, colour and tonal variety. Medium length poses will allow us time to practice capturing the human form but not get too drawn into detail, giving us the opportunity to pull back and try to ‘see’ what the fundamental elements needed really are.
Katharine is well known for her figurative work and landscape painting. Her explorations of colour, shape and depth alongside fast sketching techniques and exploration of mixed media lead the development of her practice.
The class is designed for all levels, whether to try for the first time or follow your own practice. Easels will be available but please bring along your own painting materials, water based oils or gouache advised (water-based or solvent-free only please as we will have the model in close proximity) and a packed lunch or you can purchase from the café if you wish.
Cost £35/£30conc. Includes tea and coffee during the day.
Places Up to 15 places available
Suitable for age 16+.
Booking Please book by 1 June

Cost: £35
