January 22nd – March 4th Studio Support Group
Wednesdays 9.30-1.00, £150, bring your own materials
This is a small group of four held in my studio fortnightly. It is aimed at artists who need a bit of support to get going with a new direction or focus in their painting. There will be individual attention, group discussions and demonstrations tailored to each individual’s needs. There will be digital support between classes by email and written feedback at the end of the four sessions. These dates are now full but I will be running further groups in 2020.
January 25th and 26th Colour Workshop Weekend
10-4pm, £160, materials provided except for brushes
This practical workshop will cover many aspects of colour mixing, including limited palettes, complimentary colours, neutrals, harmony and discord, earth colours and colour temperature. This workshop is aimed at professional artists or keen amateurs who would like to further understand the role of colour in their work.
August 24th to 28th Imaginative Composition
Monday to Friday 10.00-4.00, £320 most materials provided
Using acrylic or oil paint, monoprinting and collage you will work from memory, imagination and on the spot drawings to create imaginative compositions that straddle the figurative and the abstract. A series of experimental exercises will lead into a personal project which will open up new directions. Expect a playful yet structured week. This course is suitable for experienced artists as well as those who have had less or no experience, but have a spirit of adventure.
I am also available for one to one mentoring.
The following art classes and workshops are bookable through the link. You will also find further information there, but feel free to email me with questions.
