Would you love to explore colour, gesture and painterly mark-making?

In this workshop you will learn how to express the beauty of ‘the great outdoors’, skies, moorlands, flora and fauna using acrylic paint on canvas. Liberate the inner artist within you in this one day painting workshop.

A looseness of style, vitality and gestural marks are the hallmarks of Sara’s paintings. During the day, she will guide you through tried and trusted techniques for letting go and creating paintings which capture and express the mood of ‘the great outdoors’ using a rich colour palette.

There will be a lunch break in the middle of the day with time to go out to a nearby cafe.

The ticket price includes a basic painting kit with the following items:
– A primed canvas
– Acrylic paints
– Acrylic brushes – various sizes including some larger flat brushes
– An old plate for mixing colours
– A3 drawing paper, charcoal

Please bring along your own apron to wear and any other materials of your own you would like to use.

*There are only 10 places available on this programme so don’t miss out!
