Paying tribute to the love of your life. Using Acrylics we will explore through various painting techniques how to portray your pet without fussing over detail. Each animal/pet has a uniqueness all of it’s own, whether through it’s personality or distinctive markings. This workshop will help you express the character of your pet and show you how to portray it’s individuality on canvas in a more contemporary style.

Old Bank Studios offers a wide range of art, craft and textile courses and work-shops. Based in a glorious Edwardian banking hall, our fully equipped studios provide ideal spaces where students can work in a relaxed, ambient atmosphere.
