A Letchworth-based artist is holding workshops inspiring people to "explore their artistic flair" and get painting.

The 'Get Painting' workshops are held at Letchworth Settlement and hosted by Tony Faulkner, who paints caricatures with a comic twist.

Tony said: "It's great fun and very rewarding. Anyone can come along and enjoy this tremendous pastime in a very friendly group.

"The Settlement is a wonderful venue with good facilities including a common room for tea breaks. There is a lovely garden area. 

"I believe anyone can paint and the Get Painting groups allow you to develop your artistic flair in a workshop where ideas can be shared."


Tony has painted portraits of members of the Royal Family including Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Queen Camilla, as well as American leaders such as Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
