Workshops for 2018
Tuesday 6th March, 2018
9.30am – 2.00 pm
Come along and discover how meditative and relaxing playing with watercolour can be! In this 1/2 day workshop our focus will be on opening ourselves to the joy of creating and the positive effect it has on our wellbeing.
I’ll show you how painting is a relaxing therapy, as well as give you the opportunity to discover how watercolour behaves, and how you can use what you learn to make your own exciting artworks… or not… the choice is yours!
It truly is a misconception that you need to be an artist or have ‘talent’ to enjoy the benefits that making art gives.
All materials plus tea, coffee and light refreshments are included.
You will just need to bring some lunch.
The Painted Landscape
Saturday 17th March 2018
9am – 4pm
This one day workshop is perfect for beginners or anyone who would like to learn more about landscape painting. Topics covered include, tone, colour, atmospheric perspective, composition, and we’ll also take a look at some of the common problems unique to painting the landscape. By the end of the day you will have a toolbox of new skills to get you started and/or move you further along the path to creating stunning landscape paintings.
Please note that while this workshop is especially suitable for oil painters, those wishing to use acrylic, watercolour or gouache are also welcome as the concepts are universal.
Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be provided. You will need to bring your own lunch.
A materials list will be given on registration.
Handouts and some extra materials will be provided
