Portrait painting: Wendy Hooton

Ann Witheridge of London Fine Art Studios painting a woman's portrait

Join Scott Pohlschmidt of London Fine Art Studios for a live portrait painting of inspirational Army veteran Wendy Hooton.

Wendy Hooton enlisted in the Army in 1972. After completing her basic training at Guildford, she moved to Catterick and qualified as a communication centre operator.

In these lively art and storytelling workshops, Wendy will be discussing her time in the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC), a career that saw her serving in London, Hong Kong, Australia, Cyprus and Germany. Scott Pohlschmidt will provide a live commentary on the portrait techniques he is using.

Drop in between 11am and 1pm, or between 2pm and 4pm.

These sessions are part of a series which complements our Rise of the Lionesses exhibition and celebrates the role of women in the British Army. Five artists from London Fine Art Studios will paint five inspirational soldiers who have served in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) or the WRAC. The portraits will then go on display at the Museum.
