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!
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!) Or outside if weather is good.
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.
