What you will do
Two session course
This course is led by Leo Crane, award-winning animator, painter and tutor. He is co-founder of Figuration, a creative studio for animation and design. He holds an MA (Distinction) in 3D Computer Animation and trained in painting under Maggi Hambling CBE.
Join Leo for a weekend masterclass in portrait painting. Taking inspiration from the huge variety of approaches to portraiture, from old masters to contemporary practitioners, you will have the opportunity to experiment and explore in oils or acrylics.
Leo will guide you through a series of exercises looking at anatomy, proportion, composition and colour before a full day’s painting with a professional portrait model.
Some experience of painting would be an advantage, but is not essential. You will need to bring your own painting materials and canvasses. Paper and charcoal will be provided for preparatory drawing exercises.

About your host, Minerva Workshop
The Minerva Workshop is located in Kentish Town in North London, in an old Victorian Warehouse full of creative businesses, and run by painter Lottie Cole.
The Minerva Workshop hosts masterclasses taught by artists and artisans as well as regular weekly classes. All the classes are taught by professional full-time artists and artisans, who love to share their knowledge and skill.
The classes are open to all levels, unless stated, and kept to a limited number of no more than 12. This keeps the classes intimate and allows for everyone to have sufficient help and encouragement in a friendly atmosphere.
As well as learning and expanding skills our goal is to send participants away refreshed and invigorated by sharing a creative experience.
