Due to unforeseen circumstances this course has been cancelled, if you booked a place then a member of the Box Office team will be in touch.

Join Base resident artist Ellie Kerr-smiley for a five week course in contemporary portraiture painting.

Each session will focus on unpacking different key steps and areas of creating a portrait in chronological order, beginning with the essentials of composition and experimenting with ways to turn your ideas into a visual medium, through choosing your materials and painting techniques to capturing a likeness and completing a piece.

By the end of the fifth session, each participant should have a completed portrait to take home as well as the tools to keep creating interesting and unique portraits in the future.
