Art is good for you. It really is. So this year, why not treat yourself to a workshop to get those creative juices flowing once more.
Drawing from observation uses both sides of the brain.
Drawing as an activity is calming and contemplative, and can lower blood pressure and reduce stress.
Drawing can develop and enhance our appreciation of our surroundings.
Unlock the power of your creativty in 2017 on one of my workshops. You'll have a super time.
I have three lovely workshops coming up and places are going fast so book early.
On Wednesday 1st February I'm doing an all day workshop in my lovely studio called "Art for pleasure". It's my most popular workshop, and I simply love it.
Everyone has a great time and learns how to get back to their art and enjoy drawing and creating once more, even if it's been years (decades!) since they last picked up a pencil.
[I also have a few places left on Oil painting for absolute begginers on Monday 6th February].
Each workshop begins at 10.30 and ends around 3.30pm.
Bring your own packed lunch, I'll provide tea, coffee and squash all day!
We begin with drawing. A few quick drawings to start you off.
I'll teach you some great techniques to build your confidence and get you going. You'll be amwaied at what you can achieve.
You can work in a variety of different media - pastels have proved really popular in the past, when people have wanted to add colour, but don't want to head towards paint straight away. Alternatively, Watercolours are great to add a wash of colour to a drawing. I'm an oil painter by trade but I absolutely love to sketch in waterolours and lay down my ideas in this medium, so I can help with your watercolour technique too.
My workshops are hands on - you'll work hard and I'll do plenty of demos to help explain how you can take your art further. I wont draw all over your own work, I'll demo on separate paper, so you'll really be able to see your won work improve and develop without me cheating!
My courses are relaxed and enjoyable.
A Maximum of 5 places means that I can help everyone achieve better artwork.
Every course is always great fun, book your place on the next one!
There's more info on my workshop page or to a how to get started in in drawing

Treat yourself, you'll have a great day!
