*We have restructured Yvette Coppersmith’s Self Portrait Intensive workshop to observe physical distancing and safety, and it is now a PORTRAITURE INTENSIVE.

You will learn techniques in sketching, measuring proportions and dividing planes, plus how to simplify and deconstruct paintings by creating a portrait from one of Yvette’s works.  We’ll work through a range of exercises to strengthen perception and creating a likeness, and be taken through incremental steps that facilitate blocking in structural underpinnings.

Yvette will share demonstrations in paint mixing and application emphasising freedom of mark making, gesture and pushing beyond ideas of perfection.  You will experience processes in this workshop that can be adapted to your studio and developed with further practice.

Sunday 14th June
10am – 4pm
Tutor: Yvette Coppersmith
PLACES ARE LIMITED TO 12
