PORTRAIT CLUB is a one day workshop delivered by painter Mark Readhead. The workshop is suitable for beginners and artists interested in exploring and extending their skills in drawing/painting with a focus on portraiture.

Painting portraits from life can be a daunting and frustrating experience when trying to achieve a recognisable resemblance. Mark will offer expert instruction through a range of drawing/painting exercises to help build your confidence in portrait painting and in using oil paints. Participants will create three resolved portraits (a self-portrait, a portrait of a fellow peer in the class, and portrait of a sitter) over the course of the day. Whilst taking an academic approach, Mark hopes to encourage your individual style through a relaxed and fun workshop.
