These intimate art weekends enable you to explore, develop and improve your creativity. Working alongside leading artists and photographers, take inspiration from the Gallery and look at portraiture in new, exciting ways. Class numbers are limited to 12. All materials are provided.

Artist Alison Kusner leads this two day workshop which begins with sketching from a portrait by Sargent in the Gallery, during which you will consider pose, setting, costume, expression and technique. Back in the studio you will learn the sight-size technique while working from a copy of your chosen portrait on a dark ground. Then you will learn to use the limited palette technique: creating all the flesh tones with yellow ochre, vermillion, black and white. On day two you will bring together these techniques to create a self-portrait.
