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.

Sharon Thomas is a practicing painter based in Glasgow, lecturing at Glasgow School of Art, represented by Teverina Fine Arts in Italy. 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).
