Looking at the Everyday...

Creating still life can be a fascinating insight into our responses to the everyday objects we use, look at, love or dislike and sometimes discover. They become the things which define us, a diary that, in its own way, becomes the story of our life. 

In these new workshops sessions, we will be drawing and painting from observation and/or towards imagination. In response to the ordinary (and not so ordinary) we will develop broader and deeper ways of looking and seeing.

We approach these still life sessions with a sense of play. A place where we can experiment freely without pressure or expectation, with enjoyment and fun.  The workshop sessions will include the fundamentals of drawing (eg angles, perspective and tonal work) through fun exercises to a more considered approach. We will explore colour; how to use it, mix it, develop a personal palette and how to apply, making the marks we desire to express our observations. 

Who are they for?

These classes are especially for beginners wishing to begin this rewarding journey of creativity, as well as those with experience who wish to improve their practice.

They are also an excellent introduction for children aged 10-16 (separate classes) as well as those children who have some experience but wish to take their practice to the next level.

These workshops are relaxed, small groups where the key is to enjoy while developing new creative skills in drawing and painting.
