The cycle of Art & Wine painting workshops will commence 18th of June at 7pm with the figurative workshop "I portrait you-portrait me" and will be held within the atrium of The Museum od Fine Arts. During the workshop, each attendee receives a glass of wine as preferred, be that glass of red or a glass of white. If at a later time one is attending a workshop during the morning, on offer is also a glass of refreshing and mild Aperool Spritz, or a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice . The workshop attendees paint portraits of other individuals in the workshop, who at the same time paint their portrait. There are many different rules concerning portrait painting, almost as many as there are artists, but it is this opportunity of variation of styles, that makes the portrait always an interesting and a fresh subject . The attendees of this workshop will obtain the basic knowledge of how to approach portrait painting, in the medium of watercolour, pencil or charcoal. They will have the opportunity to paint and meet many new and different people, and obtain painting and drawing skills whilst socialising and enjoying in conversation.
Materials : Watercolour / pencil/ charcoal/ (You may bring alternative materials to use during the workshops)
