Due to popular demand, we are offering this two-day portrait course with tutor Anna Wimbledon for the third consecutive year.  You will have the opportunity for intensive study under Anna's patient but expert eye, with the aim of producing a 'finished' painting of the portrait model over the two days.  There will be demonstrations and guidance in technique, colour and form with plenty of one-to-one contact.

The materials list is below and this will also be emailed to participants prior to the course.

Covid-19 Update: The safety and well-being of our participants and tutors is of the greatest importance to us. On all our courses, we will implement appropriate social distancing and spacing, limitation of numbers attending, supplies of masks/visors, hand wash stations and sanitiser, individual tools where possible and scrupulous cleaning throughout.  If you should feel unwell prior to the course, we would respectfully request that you stay at home and contact us as soon as possible. If you have any queries, please contact us prior to booking: info@cromartyartstrust.org.uk
