Come along to hear how local artist Jo Romero creates her popular portraits of homes and historic buildings. She’ll let you in on her top tips, techniques and how to add character to your drawing and give it your own personal touch. The session will begin with a brief talk and then Jo will guide you through all the techniques you need to be able to draw your portrait. If you don’t want to draw your own house, how about drawing one as gift for a family member or friend?

In this Workshop…

Enjoy a hot drink and delicious slice of cake or biscuits, while Jo introduces you to different styles of house portraits, perspective, colour and techniques to help add character to your drawing of your home. By the end of the session you will leave with your own house portrait to put on the wall or give as a gift!

Please bring with you to the workshop:

  • Your choice of medium for drawing: Fineliners (permanent, not water soluble)/pencils/whatever you like to use.
  • Your choice of medium for adding colour: Watercolour paints and some brushes/felt tip pens/marker pens/coloured pencils
  • A photo of your home (or chosen house if for someone else), preferably printed out or from a photo. If it’s on a phone please make sure you have enough battery power for 2-3 hours of looking at it and zooming in and out.

Jo will provide A4 watercolour paper, poly sleeves and cardboard envelopes to protect your work on the journey home. She’ll also bring a couple of spare watercolour tins in case people fancy trying those.
