Join William Palin, architectural writer and former Assistant Curator at Sir John Soane’s Museum, for a walking tour of Holborn and Bloomsbury looking at the architecture of Soane's time, taking in the buildings he both admired and despised. The tour will conclude with a visit the research library at Sir John's Soane Museum to look at drawings from the collection.
Taking the celebrated portraitists of Soane’s day as inspiration, develop your skills in portrait painting, focusing on form, tone and colour. Students will work from a model using a monochromatic palette before moving on to a more ambitious work in colour.
