About this course
31 May / 5 June, all 10am to 4pm
This one day intensive portraiture course offers the opportunity to work from a model at close range. You will be encouraged to create engaging portraits working through ideas from drawing (tonal study) to the finished article.
Parisian born Isabel Coulton grew up in the bohemian art world of 1960’s France. Her grandmother was a talented painter in oils, her grandfather painted, collected works of art and discovered the now famous Bernard Buffet, whom he exhibited in his Champs Elysee gallery.
Her home was a fusion of French avant-garde and the practical quiet beauty of early carved furniture, her English father’s passion, later to become his speciality.
Her mother, Lydia Corbett, (nee Sylvette David), once Picasso’s muse, now paints in her own right, drawing inspiration from the great master and exhibits in London’s Maddox Street.
During her studies, Isabel supplemented her knowledge and income by working at the King’s Cross Workshops, 1984-86, before being accepted for a full time position at Thomas Restorations in little Venice in 1987, working mainly for Partridges of Bond street. Here she honed her skills, everyday experiencing the work of Robert Adam, Chippendale, and Thomas Hope.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
