IMPRESSIONISTIC PAINTING WEEKEND
Colour, brush marks, energy and a 'vision' all contribute to creating a strong emotional response to a painting.
Loosening up brings out the real YOU!! We show you how to approach an 'impressionistic' style. How to work, how to get vision and how to interpret.
A really exciting course which will get your teeth tingling, your mind whirling and your senses in overdrive!!
You paint in a Professional Art Studio: JoeDaisy Studio, Dons Yard, Mapledurham, Oxon
We Bring Out the Artist in YOU!!
WELCOME TO YOU to ask us any questions
or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Time to 'Loosen Up' and really be YOU!!
Price is £300 for 2 days painting which includes all your art materials
Dont worry!! We make it easy for you!!
SATURDAY (All times are approximate)
Arrive 9.30-9.45am Get together in our upstairs lounge, meet your fellow artists. Have a cup of tea or coffee, or water or even wine!!
10.0am Your tutor explains the course and introduces you to the Studio. No-one lives here, (although it looks like a beautiful house!) it is just a studio and is your "home" for the weekend. So relax and enjoy!
10.10am Choose your place in the painting studio. Every place is the same, with professional paints, brushes etc. Everyone has their own professional easel, painting table and high stool. Your tutor explains which are the best products to use and tells you why.
10.15am We start off by everyone painting the same image and learning brush marks, wet on wet acrylic techniques and how to loosen up and understand how to be 'loose' and when to STOP!!
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SESSION and everyone learns from others!
We are not here to "Judge" you - just to help you create a professional painting!
12.30pm LUNCH In the upstairs lounge or outside on a good day. We provide a lovely fresh buffet with fresh food, meats and cheeses, salads etc. We are suitable for vegetarians but if you have a special diet, let us know. Tea, coffe, water, soft drinks, red and white wine are available.
1.0pm We start a new painting based on a photographic inspiration and you are encouraged to use your own colours and THINK about how you can 'reduce' the space with marks and expressive brush strokes.
4.0-4.30pm We talk about what you are going to do next day. Day ends
SUNDAY - 2ND DAY
Arrive 9.30am. We start early this morning and finish about 3.30pm, so that students who have long journey home can leave in daylight.
You can bring in a photograph or a drawing of something you want to paint.
Bring something 'clever' like a flower bed full of colour - or a landscape where you can imagine the space being brought back to basic colour and line. THIS IS AN IMPRESSION - a great way to paint. Exciting, Fun and VERY YOU!!
12.0-12.30pm LUNCH In the upstairs lounge or outside on a good day. We provide a lovely fresh buffet with fresh food, meats and cheeses, salads etc. We are suitable for vegetarians but if you have a special diet, let us know. Tea, coffe, water, soft drinks, red and white wine are available.
1.0pm Back to painting
3.15pm Critique your paintings and appreciate the riot of colour and marks you've created!
Day ends. Time to collect your paintings and say goodbye (very sad) but most people come back again and again!
This is a "Beginners Oil " Painting weekend where your tutor does not impose his/her will on you but encourages you to paint "LIKE YOU" with enjoyment, encouragement and in a relaxed, friendly environment.
WE REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!!!!!
