Bring the Joy back into your Painting Practice. 

Class no longer running

With Celia Forestal Smith

Tuesday 14th April - Tuesday 30th June

10am-1pm

Do you feel stuck in your Art making? Then this is the course for you. We will be exploring playful and fun techniques in order to free yourself up in your painting practice. We will use techniques such as; working in a series, using a 'Wailing Wall’ and using 'Bin Papers'. We will also be painting to music and dancing to access our more creative right side of our brain and giving our analytical thinking, linear, often judgemental, left side of our brain a nice holiday. 

We will be creating a series of paintings on paper and primed boards using acrylic paints, collage and oil/wax pastels and using tools such as scrappers, rollers, silver birch twig brushes, Gelli plates, and trowels. We will be creating textures with wet paper and modelling mediums as well as scrapping away surfaces to reveal the unknown underneath. Participants will learn in depth knowledge about COLOUR and how to really use it to create more authenticity and discernment in your art making. Free yourself up and bring the joy back into your painting! 

Full materials list will be provided.

 

Course duration: 12 weeks
