About the event

In this session, You will be guided step by step by Artist Richard Young in the use of painting knives. We think we can all agree John Lennon is one of the musical greats and has forever left his mark on history. Why not help celebrate and honour this icon by attending this class and walking away with your own portrait at the end. If you want to honour him further you can even get your painting framed at an additional cost and hang it with pride on your wall. You don't need to be painter or have any prior experience. Refreshments are provided so we can even raise a glass together. We hope to see you there!

About the Artist - Richard Young

Richard is a multi - award winning, professional artist with nearly 20 years’ experience in all aspects of the art world. He opened the R Young Art gallery in 2021 Defining his artwork style as being contemporary realism, the technique he favours is a form of segmented alla prima, completed in four wet on wet layers during each painting session: The dark shadows and undertones, the mid tones and then the highlights and light glaze effects.

Stylish, sleek and contemporary, Richard’s artwork will be a sophisticated addition to any home, hotel, restaurant or office space.
