Join us at the Royal Air Force Museum in February for a unique 1 day art course – Painting Portraits - People in Painting. This workshop will be led by artist Josephine Lyons.
People have inspired paintings for years; learn how to reveal stories about people and to capture a sense of presence in portraiture & how to make great realistic paintings. This course will teach you to portray what you see and help create further understanding of different visual languages in the arts.
