TWO DAY LANDSCAPE PAINTING WITH SARAH SPACKMAN
Working directly from landscape around the village green. The aim is to experience and convey key forms and atmosphere through observation painting. Encouragement will be given to create unity of composition, a sense of scale of land forms and the sky. Students will draw outside (weather permitting) and create studies using oil on paper, concentrating on simplifying impressions and identifying the main visual ideas. The course will result in two or more or more paintings in oils, along with several drawings. Cost: £126.00. Maximum 10 Students.

For students with some experience. Cost: £126.00.

Maximum: 8 Students.

LANDSCAPE PAINTING IN WATERCOLOUR with ANTHONY WILDER
A day of watercolour painting for beginners and more experienced painters.

Cost: £66.00. Maximum: 10 Students.


 

Thursday 5th July 10.00 am – 4.00 pm

PORTRAIT OF A DRAG QUEEN with NEIL DRURY
A rare opportunity to paint the most colourful and larger-than-life character, a drag queen.
We will concentrate on producing a vivid and highly theatrical portrait-reminiscent of Toulouse Lautrec’s bohemian cabaret artists, or Dame Laura Knight’s circus performers.
An ideal workshop for those just starting in portraiture, or those seasoned practitioners eager for a new and fascinating challenge. A really enjoyable and colourful day.

Cost: £82.00. Maximum: 10 Students.

ALL ABOUT COLOUR with KATE HAMMERSLEY

You will be able to create a summer palette of vibrant colours and produce a painting of seasonal summer fruits using acrylic paint. You will create a final painting using the skills you have gained.

Cost: £126.00. Maximum: 10 Students.


 

Thursday 12th July 10.00 am – 3.00 pm
