A wonderful start to the New Year, I'm really excited to announce new acrylic painting classes at the The School of Art and Well Being, East Devon in their gorgeous studio.
Demonstrations, exercises in drawing & painting. An opportunity to work en plein air with professional painter and tutor Matthew Davison, gathering the details and atmosphere to develop expressive paintings in comfort of the studio. The classes include: creating suitable surfaces to paint on, exercises in drawing, using pencil & charcoal, painting, use of rags and palette knives. If you can leave the cosiness of the wood-burning stove we will be working outside for some of the session, the beautiful Devon landscape is a short walk away from the warm and inviting studio. We will also look at the development of formal elements and obscurity in picture making, using imagination, expression and atmosphere. We will be exploring a range of practical techniques, concepts and art history.
Try new skills through use of peripheral view, observation, imagination, atmosphere and personal response.
