NEW WORKSHOPS ONLINE COMING SOON! STARTING JUNE 5th 2022 10AM SUNDAYS
These workshops are themed towards the abstract landscape. A series of stand alone sessions will push your use of traditional materials but introduce you to abstract ways of working. You don't need to be an experienced artist, just willing to explore and have fun. You also don't need to do all of the workshops, you can drop in as they are designed that way.
'I don’t know quite how you create a ‘workshop’ - type atmosphere for these workshops, where there is a sense of purpose and community but it’s not intimidating! By far and away the best thing I’ve experienced over zoom' (workshop attendee 'Expressive Landscapes 2021').
We will explore together the use of abstraction in the work of famous artists and then incorporate those techniques using; intuitive Composition and Form (Grace Hartigan, Lyubov Popova and Peter Landon), Texture and surface (Mark Bradford, Joan Eardley, Helen Frankenthaler), Abstract Expression and colour (The Fauvists, Kandinsky and Clifford Still), Line and tone (Maggie Hamlin, Joan Mitchell and Frank Auerbach).
The workshops in this series are:
5TH JUNE Intuitive Composition
19TH JUNE Texture and Surface
10TH JULY Abstract Expression and colour
24TH JULY Line and tone
