Mindfulness and abstract mark-making

Abstract compositions arise naturally and easily as a by-product of exercises that focus more on the immediate experience of seeing, sensing and responding with drawing and painting, than on pre-meditated subject matter or compositions. Bring open eyes and an open mind.

** If booking 3 or more classes, you must activate 5% discount by typing POTATO in discount code box and clicking 'APPLY’ during checkout before payment **

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 in relevant colours for the class, palettes to mix colours on, and hot drinks etc. You'll need to bring a picnic lunch and we’ll send you a list of other materials and equipment to bring after booking.

* AA 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.
