9.45am Arrive at Magic Easel Studio in Mapledurham, Berkshire. (Mapleduram, RG4 7TN) We have a large car park if you are driving. Have breakfast at our Guest House if you stayed the night before.
Have a coffee, tea or water. Meet your fellow artists. (There is even wine for those needing it!!)
10.0am Cat 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. 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 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.
12.30am Lunch is 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 Cat 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 100cm 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!!
