Thanks very much for the notes and the photo, and also for a very inspiring and really enjoyable weekend.  I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot and it was also great meeting the rest of the group; I really love coming to JoeDaisy.

BEGINNERS PORTRAIT PAINTING WEEKEND

1st Day

9.45am Arrive at Studio in Mapledurham, Berkshire. (Dons Yard, Mapleduram, RG4 7TP) We have a large car park if you are driving. Have breakfast at our Guest House if you stayed the night before.

Come up to the upstairs lounge and have a coffee, tea or water. Meet your fellow artists. (There is even wine for those needing it!!)

10.0am Your tutor welcomes you to the studio, explains the weekend and tells you about herself. You are encouraged to tell us a bit about yourself (if you want to) and what you particularly want from the weekend. Everyone is nervous but there is always laughter and fun!!

Then choose your painting station downstairs in the studio. Everyone has their own painting easel, table, high stool. Professional paints, professional brushes and canvases or paper. We take a maximum of 8 students per workshop.

The workshop begins.

Tea & Coffee is available any time - just help yourself - the studio is YOURS for the weekend. Do what you gotta do!!

Our Aim is to 'Bring out the Artist in You' - we DO NOT just paint and let you copy us. We motivate, inspire and teach originally.

12.30am Lunch in the upstairs lounge. A delicious fresh buffet with wine. (A glass of wine often helps you paint EVEN BETTER in the afternoon!)

1.0pm Back to painting - where we complete your 1st professional painting

4.30pm Discussion about tomorrow. Talk to your tutor about what painting you want to do tomorrow. Bring in a photograph or drawing or ideas and concepts. (Depends on which workshop you are taking) Prepare your canvas for tomorrow. Can be up to 100cm x 70cm in size.

5.0pm Day Ends

You either go home or come to our Guest House and eat out with the group across the road at an excellent restaurant. We book you a table - as it is SO good - you HAVE to book!

WE REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!!

2nd DAY

9.30am Arrive at 9.30 this morning. Your tutor will talk you through (again!) your perfect fine art composition. REMEMBER we do not impose our will on you but YOU develop your skills and talent.

Often everyone goes straight upstairs for a coffee and chinwag with each other about today's painting! Students are still seen with heads in art books, pencils on drawing pads or flicking through ipads!

Beginners acrylic painting weekends
The studio stands in the shadow of the historic Mapledurham House and a few seconds to the River Thames and famous watermill.

You are advised on the colours to use, the brush to use in each space. Your tutor will let you be as 'contemporary' or 'traditional' as you require. There are many ways to paint a painting so your tutor will help you make decisions.

Concepts, approach, style, technicalities etc are discussed depending on which workshop you are attending.

12.30am Lunch in the upstairs lounge. A delicious fresh buffet with wine. (A glass of wine often helps you paint EVEN BETTER in the afternoon!)

1.0pm Back to painting - where we complete your 2nd professional painting

3.0-3.30pm Day Ends - Group photo (which we send you) along with teaching notes about your chosen painting weekend.

Your tutor is only there for you. She is NOT painting her own paintings but gives you constant attention and help. Every student is encouraged to 'Develop their Own Style'. We have everything you need in the studio for experimental work, (all art products). etc

We also offer email support after you have completed a painting weekend. You can also pop into our weekday workshops. Tel:0118 4938144 for any help.
