About this event

You will receive expert guidance through a range of demonstrations and 1-1 feedback.

The workshop will cover materials, techniques and colour mixing; exploring separate elements found in oil paintings culminating the making of simple still life and landscape paintings.

Your tutor:

Richard Kitson paints, draws and makes etchings in his studio in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Kitson is primarily known for his portraiture and figurative works, which often depict family members and friends. In addition to his figurative works, Kitson occasionally paints landscapes and still life subjects. Kitson’s work is underpinned by a training in academic drawing and life drawing.

In 2018 Kitson participated in Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year where he painted Paralympic athlete Kadeena Cox MBE at the Wallace Collection in London. 2018 also saw the opening of Kitson’s first solo exhibition at the Cooper Gallery in Barnsley.

Kitson’s first international solo exhibition took place during the Spring of 2019 at the Labor Im Chor gallery, part of the Museum and Galerie im Prediger in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany. In 2020 Kitson’s double portrait ‘Two Young Painters’ was selected for display in the annual Royal Society of Portrait Painters exhibition at Mall Galleries, London.

All materials and equipment are provided as well as refreshments but please bring a packed lunch. Alternatively, there is a cafe across the road at sandtoft airport!
