Oil Painting Workshops with Shawn Barber

The London Tattoo Convention are thrilled to display brand new works from Shawn Barber's 'The Tattooed Portraits' series this September. Shawn will also be running oil painting workshops Saturday & Sunday where you can receive expert tuition from the artist himself. 

Open to all attending artists and visitors to the convention, LA-based artist Shawn Barber will be offering workshops for attendees to master the art of oil painting. Places on Shawn's workshops will be very limited and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis - so don't delay in booking this unique opportunity to learn from the best in the business. 

Shawn will present two workshops over the weekend on both Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September; one will focus on painting a skull from reference, and the second will be portrait painting. Each workshop starts at 12pm for 3 hours and costs £150, with reference supplied by Shawn. 

The courses are open to beginners and intermediate level painters, though some painting experience is encouraged.

Please email sdbarber@gmail.com for further information about attending Shawn's workshops, specifying which course you would prefer to book. Visitors booked on any of Shawn's courses will receive discounted entry to the convention.
