About Painting Portraits

This 6 week course will introduce you to the basic skills required to create a successful portrait through drawing and sketching. You will then use these skills to develop a finished painted portrait you can be proud of!

This course is suitable for beginners and those with more experience. Every 6 weeks the painting medium used will change, to explore a wide range of traditional as well as more contemporary painting techniques, allowing participants to sign up for one 6 week block or more.

Trained in Glasgow School of Art (BFA 2001) and New York Academy of Art (MFA 2004), recent exhibitions include: Vokse-Vaerk, Museet For Religios Kunst, Denmark (2015); 21 Revolutions, CCA, Glasgow and Royal Scottish Academy (2011-13); Herstory Portrait, Paisley Museum (2012).
