In my workshops you can expect a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Students of all levels are welcome — if you’re a beginner, you’ll learn as much from watching the people around you as from me. If you’re looking to deepen your understanding of acrylics, develop a more creative, spontaneous approach or just reinvigorate your practice, these workshops will meet your needs. I’ll do some brief demonstrations to show you how I use layering and acrylic mediums and I’ll show you slides of other artists’ work to stir your imagination. Most of the time you’ll be painting while I move around the room making sure everyone gets the individual attention they need. We’ll end with a group critique where you’ll learn to assess your own work in progress and decide what to do next when you’re working on a painting.
Discover the exciting possibilities of monoprinting combined with painting and collage. We’ll use a gel plate and acrylic paints to create a stash of beautiful and inspiring collage papers. Then we’ll layer paint, collage and more monotypes in an iterative, intuitive process. We’ll also use the gel plate on its own to make figurative or abstract monotypes and experiment with image transfers. Artists of all levels are welcome.
