Explore, develop and celebrate your own unique creativity through learning new painting techniques and deepening your practice of listening and expression. Participants will be able to experiment in a freer, playful and intuitive way as well as taking more risks with their painting. We shall be using techniques such as blending, dripping, layering, scraffito, printing as well as exploring the primary picture elements such as line, shape, size, tone, colour, texture and composition. We shall put our work in context by looking at other contemporary abstract artists work.


About the Tutor

Exhibiting and teaching for many years, Celia’s work ranges from graphic illustration to highly abstract, capturing the spontaneous and intuitive nature of living in the moment – a type of expressive freedom. Founding Elemental Community Arts in 2008, Celia has worked extensively with local schools and community groups in the Highlands and Moray. These days, you will find Celia working in her Forres-based studio, teaching groups and individuals at local venues and exhibiting widely
