If you've ever wished you could draw or paint a likeness of someone - family, friends - even a character that you've seen on the train, why not join our monthly portrait sessions. Watch this space for details of the 2019 series of sessions.
We're a small, friendly group, all trying to improve our skills and achieve something of a likeness of the model for the afternoon, usually a club member volunteer. There's no common standard and we all encourage each other so it's a welcoming and non-competitive atmosphere whether you're a new member or been with us a while. Contact us FAO John Washington if you'd like to give it a try.
