About The Course

This Portrait Painting Masterclass will begin with a brief introduction from Tim Benson about the philosophy behind his style of work as well as the choice of materials he uses. Students will be asked to undertake some small, quick oil sketches. Each sketch eliminating the need for detail, rather concentrating on the basics of form, tone and colour. Later in the day there will be more sustained poses which will continue into the second day, where students will have the chance to consolidate the ‘loose’ approach on a larger scale, retaining the painterly language and avoiding the impulse to add detail. At the end of the second day there will be a one-on-one critique/discussion of student’s work.

Pay full amount or deposit.

Balance due no later than six weeks before the course date, see Terms and Conditions for full details.

About The Venue

Trinity Buoy Wharf

‘Great tutors, friendly hosts and fab locations, and everytime I go I meet a bunch of lovely new friends. I cannot recommend The New School of Art enough. Keep up the great work and Thank you.’ – Abigail 2017

Our London HQ at Trinity Buoy Wharf is the School’s permanent home, forming part of the creative quarter of London’s Docklands. The small but perfectly formed first floor studio overlooks the Thames and across to the Millennium Dome, with far reaching views and surrounded by a lively creative community.

With plenty of natural light our well equipped studio is a wonderful place to paint in and with lots of outside space this location works well for plein air painting also.
