A TRULY AMAZING ABSTRACT PAINTING WEEKEND

This is about CREATION & SKILL

We first of all understand paint (the transparents and the opaques) and what it does

We learn about the complexities of layering

We learn paint processing

We learn colour balance and journeying

We then learn Mark Making and how to add INTENT to the painting.

We will talk about inspiration, drawing, concepts

You need some experience and an understanding of painting for this weekend. Also some vision and thinking 'outside the box'

The weekend 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.
