Altered States

This exercise combines a playful introduction to photo montage with fantastical drawing. This is an end in itself. However… it can be an exciting step into something completely different. This class is about helping you to have the courage to do something extraordinary, possibly strange, and see where it takes you.


On Reflection – Looking at reflective surfaces

A shiny surface presents an interesting challenge. It is easy to be intimidated, but a step by step approach can break down the fear factor.

This Wednesday workshop will look at shape, value, colour and edge using a Still Life for reference.


Through a Glass – translucent problems (AC)

When painting glass you are painting a translucent surface, a surface you can see through. The glass may be coloured, or clear, but the key to painting glass is to paint what you see through it. 

As with ‘On Reflection’ you will be looking at shape, value, colour, edges…and reflections.


Abstract Markmaking using Acrylics

  • Eve Dawson, Tutor
  • 7th & 14th December, 10.00 – 12.00,
  • Delivered via ZOOM
  • £40

The class will be about making an initial mark on your paper and then following through your instinctive ideas that will bring the page together as an abstract picture. Before you start you may have an idea for a picture – the sky? the seaside? the landscape? – but instead of copying a view or a photo you will produce marks with your colours from memory and in an abstract way.
