Renowned portrait artist Gareth Reid will be holding a 3 day Masterclass at The Malta Society of Arts on the 9, 10 and 11 October 2017. 

Gareth is the Winner of Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2017. His final and winning painting of Graham Norton is now hanging in the National Gallery of Ireland. 

His portraiture classes in Glasgow are highly sought after and this is a unique opportunity to learn both intensively and informally from him. It is also a chance to experience a Workshop with a Master Artist without having to pay for flights and accommodation if you wished to follow a short course overseas.

The course is open to those of all abilities. Whilst the focus is on learning, the atmosphere is one of fun and enjoyment. Places are limited to a max of 11 persons.

The aim of the course is to improve observation in portraiture by looking critically at shapes and relationships, by focussing on the structure of the head, to loosen up, to learn how to deal with mistakes, to think of a portrait as not just an arrangement of isolated features but something more life-like, solid and convincing. 

The cost for this course which includes use of easels, chairs, studio, 2 tea breaks, lunch and the model is – 416 Euros.
