9.30-11am Watercolour Play with Ruth Buchanan

Many people think that watercolour is difficult, but Ruth shows you a simple

technique for a quick, easy painting of a horse's eye in watercolour. All materials

are provided in this taster for Ruth's watercolour workshops.

     

11.30am -1pm Easy Oil painting with Julie Cross

A fun, introductory session introducing some of the techniques and concepts    considered in Julie's oil/acrylic workshops, and demonstrates an easy oil painting method. It’s not as scary and complicated as you may think, and you will come away with a small painting of an adorable black cat! All materials included (though please wear old clothes or an apron, as oil painting can be messy).

 

2-3.30pm Anyone Can Draw! with Ruth Buchanan

Drawing is having the confidence to just enjoy it and not feel pressured by it

'being perfect'. In her Approaches to Drawing workshop, Ruth covers different

ways to draw, and this taster gives you a go at one of those approaches -

drawing by using simple shapes. If you can form letters to write, then

you can draw! Letters are just images that we have learned, so if you can

draw them, you can learn to draw other things too.

Taster for Ruth's drawing workshops.

9.30am -12.30pm Experimental Watercolour with Ruth Buchanan

Using two experimental techniques and tonal painting, create a stunning artwork to take home. Suitable for all levels of painters to have some fun! You can bring your own materials, but some will also be provided. An optional materials list will be sent to you after your booking is confirmed. Artist Ruth Buchanan will guide you through the steps and you can 'get splashy' with the medium.

2pm - 3.30pm 'Colourful Bantam'

painting in oil or acrylic with Julie Cross

Paint a Colourful Bantam Chicken in this workshop, suitable for all levels.

You can choose to work in either oils or acrylics. We will concentrate on using

colour and lighting to bring your subject 'alive' and create additional interest

in your painting. Using a relatively simple but active profile, we will use warm,

bright colours to impart a ‘glow’ to the bantam. The canvas/board will be

provided (ready-toned in a colour to save time) but please bring your own

paints and brushes. You will need old clothes or an apron as oil painting

can be messy, and may also want to bring an old pizza box to transport your painting home safely!

Patterns and colours in an animal’s coat can become confusing to paint. In this day workshop, which is suitable for all levels, Ruth will guide you through three easy stages of painting an Amur leopard using the pattern of the spots to define the form of the animal.

Starting with an underpainting, you will get then get the chance to play with colour and dropped-in paint, before layered painting for the colour of the spots. There will be some discussion of how to choose colours and colour mixing, so you will also be able to apply the lessons in your own painting. As seen in September’s ‘The Artist’ Magazine.

Advance booking required as places are limited.

Learn to draw and sketch in more ways than just following an outline. There are many ways to approach a drawing, and sometimes it is about knowing where and how to start or what materials and drawing style suits you. Maybe you are a painter who feels that drawing will strengthen your painted work: “If painting is dancing for the soul, then drawing is the singing, the beat, the music for the painting to dance with.” Learn (the all-important) how to look, build your confidence with exercises and discover the joy of drawing.

We promise that you will surprise yourself with what you can achieve! Advance booking required as places are limited.
