Create your own self-portrait on our online course

The style of an artist is an insight into their personality, no more so than in a self-portrait. Drawing on the wealth of images in our digitised collections, from Sacred Texts to Children’s Literature, you will explore a range of artistic styles across time and culture to inspire your own creation. After an introduction to the fundamentals of portraiture, artist Leo Crane will support you as you create a self-portrait in your chosen style.

This course takes place on Zoom and we will email you a joining link the day before. There will be an opportunity to ask the tutor questions during a Q&A, and have conversations with your fellow participants in virtual breakout rooms.

Please note: materials are not provided. We’ve designed the course to make use of items which you may already have at home.
