This event has passed.

Unleash your inner artist and join our portraiture workshop inspired by John Craxton’s cubist portraits.

Guided by artist and teacher, Kate Simms, you will begin by exploring ways of drawing the male form with a clothed model. Starting with simple, quick drawing exercises you will learn the basics of portrait drawing, before moving onto the final longer pose.

In this workshop you will be using a variety of materials such as pencil, graphite sticks, charcoal and acrylic paints.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist, this workshop is the perfect chance to learn and experiments and build confidence in producing a beautiful portrait image.
