How exciting to know how to paint a likeness, using acrylic or water-mixable oil paints! Working from photographs, we will use structure and tone to create convincing portraits.


You will need to bring your own materials, though Marianne may be able to lend you some if necessary. When you make your booking, you’ll be sent a list of what to bring.

Suitable for all ages and skills: begnners, improvers and experienced.

Covid-19 Update

It is a condition of booking that every student agrees to these Covid-19 Rules before attending any course.

Marianne is well aware of the anxieties around Covid-19 and the need to offer a safe teaching environment. Therefore, she has drawn up Covid-19 Rules and a Risk Assessment document that outlines the various necessary procedures for each day. Careful planning has gone into the design of these courses, so that on the day the whole class can relax and have fun.
