The painted scribble

Enjoy the high energy of your individual scribbled mark in watercolour and mixed media, to loosen up and build shapes and textures against a scaffolding of more structured, simplified or abstracted composition. With reference to 20C artists including Frank Auerbach and Joan Mitchell.

What to expect

* Innovative and effective guided exercises in contemporary watercolour based on the workshop title, and independent work with tutor support. The classes are taught in watercolour with a contemporary feel, sometimes with drawing and mixed media work.

* The price includes high quality, professional grade watercolour paint and paper, and hot drinks. You'll need to bring a picnic lunch and we’ll send you a list of other materials and equipment to bring.

* A friendly atmosphere in mixed experience groups including beginners, rusty returners and experienced artists. We work from direct observation mostly still life and landscape and sometimes from your own drawings and source material.

* Group and individual input and feedback, relevant to your experience and aims, from professional artist-tutor with over 19 years' experience of teaching adults.

* Plenty to inspire: Cotswold buildings and landscapes, abundant and overflowing cottage gardens, as well as material in the studio.
