It's been the Art in Action weekend and artists of all media have been exhibiting and demonstrating their craft in marquees on a beautiful estate in Oxfordshire. I was fortunate enough this year to be asked to teach a workshop on behalf of The Art Academy. The session was to teach the basics of figure painting and I think it went rather well (even if I do say so myself). The work produced by the class was great and considering many had little experience of painting they tackled portrait painting with confidence and enthusiasm. I hope to be able to attend again next year and lead some more classes or workshops, it was so much fun!
