Portrait Painting Course

Our next course will start in September!

Dates: 17 Sept, 24 Sept, 1 Oct, 8 Oct 2022

London Creative Club is pleased to offer portrait painting with award winning portrait artist, Lee Fether. 

 A four week course, which covers sketching portraits in proportion and achieving skin colour in paint. Including an opportunity to work from life, a great experience and foundation for future work. You'll benefit from a small class size in a friendly atmosphere.  


Materials are included, paper, charcoal, canvas panel and oil paints.  Tea, coffee and snacks are provided.   The course fee is £150.


WEEK ONE - Saturday 17 September, 10am-1pm

We start by looking at the shape and proportions of the skull, and practice sketching a head  in charcoal.

WEEK TWO - Saturday 24 September, 10am-1pm

This week we begin a portrait painting from life. With a model in front of us, we’ll study proportion carefully, and start to sketch and block in the painting.  

WEEK THREE - Saturday 1 October, 10am - 1pm  

Continuing to paint from the model, we’ll explore the colours in skin and shadows.

WEEK FOUR- Saturday 8 October, 10am-1pm

We continue to paint from the model, to complete the portrait painting.

If you have any questions about the course, feel free to email us: hello@londoncreativeclub.co.uk

I was very happy with the painting I produced considering I have only ever done one portrait before this. I am really appreciative of Lee’s guidance and teaching. I feel excited about painting now instead of being nervous!
