An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Friday, repeating until July 9, 2021


Experimental Drawing & Painting

With a different theme each term, you will be encouraged to explore a range of experimental approaches to art through drawing, painting, collage, mixed media and mono-printing. You will have the opportunity to work from both observation and imagination and often the processes and materials themselves will be a source of inspiration. There will be guided exercises, an opportunity for individual projects and occasional collaborative work. This course is suitable for beginners as well more experienced artists and offers the opportunity to widen your creative expression, address creative ‘blocks’ and encourage more spontaneity and mindfulness in making art.

Summer Term: Journey through colour

The theme this term will evolve around colour, everything from vibrant rich pigmented hues to subtle, muted tones. There are fascinating stories around the origins of colour pigments, how colour can affect mood & how we perceive colours. Just think of the colours you love and those you really don’t go for.
As always the emphasis will be on playfully exploring and experimenting, relaxing into the NOW of creating and letting go of the need for ‘good results’. At the same time you will learn new skills, especially around mixing colours and combining colours using different materials. As we go along we’ll take inspiration from the use of colour in other artists’ work.
