All my workshops are about learning how to paint expressively, learning to paint freely and from imagination. Rather than teaching how to paint like I do, my aim is to encourage and help students to find their natural way of drawing and painting.
I run a number of workshop "series" each year and each series looks at different elements of painting expressively. I choose different topics to keep the workshops fresh and interesting with new learning to be gained each time. Each workshop in the series is stand alone, you just choose a date which suits. That said, many people come on more than one day in a series, to have another go at the exercises and consolidate learning.
My workshops are suitable for all abilities including complete beginners. Participants come with varying goals - professional artists wanting to 'loosen up' their style or find new directions, art teachers seeking to develop their own art, skilled amateur artists wanting to learn new skills and a different way of painting and total beginners to art looking for a way to begin.
I encourage students to paint from "inside out". I teach students many different ways to start a drawing or painting and suggest how to develop a range of skills and techniques using line, shape and colour. The aim is to help them paint expressively allowing the painting to evolve rather than setting a rigid idea of what it should be.
The workshops are small, only 8 to 10 participants, and are informal in style. They are held in my Studio at Wildwood, a new eco house overlooking the Surrey Hills.
"Painting with Emotion"
January 25th, 26th and February 1st, 2nd 2019 - 9.15 to 1.00pm
Painting expressively is all about being able to tap into feelings and bring them into your art work. These workshops will explore how to paint from 'Inside out', tapping into memories and feelings and how to use line, shape and colour to express these emotions.
The workshops are suitable for a range of abilities including total beginners. All materials will be supplied. We will use mainly oil and acrylic paint, but other materials will be available to add to these.
The workshops are stand-alone – you just pick a date. That said many people come to more than one workshop to consolidate their learning
