To join the annual Observation to Abstraction series, you book a set of three intensive workshops, a month apart, with homework in between to consolidate your learning. Each set of three classes forms a separate course, and you can book Term 1 (autumn 2017), or Term 2 (early 2018), or both. And if you've missed Term 1, there's still time to book Term 2.

Now in its ninth year, Observation to Abstraction tackles a different painting issue each year. This year, we investigate loosening up from six different angles, and as an abstract process in its own right. Each of the six workshops is repeated for different groups on different days. 

Choose your group:

Wednesday group 1 >> Fully booked both terms

Thursday group 1 >> which meets on 18 Jan, 15 Feb, and 15 March 2018 (Term 2). 2 places available.

Friday group 1 >> which meets on 19 Jan, 16 Feb, and 16 March 2018 (Term 2). 1 place available.

Saturday group 1 >> Fully booked both terms

Ella has given professional art tuition for over seventeen years, using the best of traditional and contemporary approaches and sharing generously from her own experience. Now in its ninth year, Observation to Abstraction articulates the many different elements of painting (not just of watercolour), effectively facilitating many painters to take their work to the next level. The course is suitable for all painters of all levels who are open to experimenting with new approaches.
