January-April 2023 - BLOCK BOOKING - WINTER & SPRING Watercolour Workshops (Saturday)
Monthly Watercolour Workshops January - April 2022, 10:00 - 13:00 at the Recreation Hall in Gullane (behind Village Hall).
NB: These sessions are for those who have already attended an 'Introduction to Watercolour'.
|Block Booking (x 4 sessions)||£145|
- 28th January - Paint a galaxy (or northern lights) with special granulating watercolour paints and vibrant inks.
- 25th February - Winter wonderland. Head to the woods and mountains for seasonal shrubs and frosty landscapes with structured, textured foregrounds. Practice 'masking out' your lightest subjects.
- 25th March - Spring horizons. As the days get longer and the light changes, we can abstract nature to create interesting seasonal washes with patterns and texture.
- 29th April - Paint the changing season with a vibrant colour palette. Capture the magic of the green leaves appearing on the silver birches. Have some fun with springtime fungi - study the subject in detail or abstract - be inspired!
These sessions allow you to continue your watercolour and mixed media practice in an open workshop setting. Additional water-based mediums will be included in these sessions, such as high-flow acrylics, water-soluble pastels and pencils, and various inks.
While prompts and how-to sheets will be available, you will be encouraged to explore your creative voice. Enjoy the process of mark-making, learning new techniques and experimenting with various materials and textures.
Kat will support you with your practice and any/all individual projects in each session.
The cost of the session includes materials (high-quality artist-grade watercolour paper and paints and mixed media) and a reusable watercolour palette that you can take home with any excess paint to practice with.
When choosing a block of sessions, I recommend investing in a study sketchbook and a watercolour sketchbook to keep notes from your continued practice. A list of suggested options will be sent before the block begins.
Refreshments will be available throughout.
