Abstract Edge exhibition.
I will be there at the preview/ opening on Sat 20 th May but also I am stewarding the exhibition on Sunday 21 st May 2 pm until 5 pm and it would be good if you can come along on either of those dates to keep me company!
My tickets are booked and equipment and materials have been sent ahead,so here's what we will be getting up to at the Art Retreat in the Loire from 3 rd June.
1) "Painted Patchwork"
A workshop that explores and compares the effects that can be achieved with watercolour and Acrylic paints.
2) "Making your Mark"
We are going on a treasure hunt!- foraging for materials to make our own paintbrushes and tools.
3)"From a Distance"
Techniques for abstraction- how to respond and take inspiration from ALL your senses.
4)"Making an Impression"
Ideas and techniques for mono- print transfer 5)"Rip it up and start again"
Collage and combined techniques.Make your paintings full of variety and surprise yourself!
There are still a couple of places available for the week at www.retreattothefarm.co.uk and you could always book to "drop- in" for just one workshop ( day rate can be negotiated) if you are going to be in the area that week?
But ,anyone who's not going to make it to France this summer- don't despair! I will be teaching these workshops at a number of venues in the U.K. for the rest of this year.
Stay tuned for details and confirmed dates- I will send to everyone on my mailing list very soon!
