Suitable for confident beginners and anyone wanting to improve their creativity, expand their general art knowledge and try some new techniques

We'll work on a single face exploring different methods and mediums to capture colour, tone, expression, form, and features. We'll draw and paint, and get creative working at scale at easels, on the the wall or floor. We'll finish with a self portrait first observed from a photograph and then from life.

The price of the workshop includes tuition, venue and all materials & equipment except brushes and you will also need to bring along an A5 or A4 sketchbook and have access to your choice of drawing medium (pencils, pens etc) for sketching at home.

You’ll need to wear suitable clothing, and bring a hand towel and refreshments. Please bring along a range of large brushes including: a 1-2” decorators brush and something like Daler Rowney Graduate long filbert bristle brushes numbers 4 and 8. One or two softer round brushes may also be useful.

My studio is at The Queens Hall, Narberth, a charity events venue located in Pembrokeshire which welcomes a variety of events including art exhibitions and creative workshops. Low cost and well managed parking can be found around the back. Narberth also has a range of shopping places to explore including many delicious eateries.

I am currently doing this course for the second time. Louise creates a theme for each session with the aim of producing a self portrait at the the end. It is challenging but extremely rewarding. We look at skin tones, light and dark and how to create a balanced composition. She helps you produce a piece of art which you can be proud of. Would highly recommend.

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thank you so much Claire for your wonderful review. It is always a pleasure and I look forward to seeing you next week for the final day of self portraiture on this course. Louise x

This course was really well set up and all the materials provided were exactly what was needed. Excellent instruction and guidance given by Louise made the course interesting and challenging .Best of all it made you feel like you had made progress in improving your own observation and drawing skills . Louise always makes the sessions relaxed and enjoyable and it’s a lovely way to spend a day at something you are keen to improve on .

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thank you so much for the lovely review Jackie. Looking forward to seeing you in the studio again soon. Louise x
