Following on from last years wonderful art retreat we will be adding a new depth to our offering and providing a special opportunity to book your space on our 2019 art retreat to take place in September 2019.
Explore the joyful process of art making by freeing yourself for this sweet 3 days of creativity.
Do you crave quiet, space and clarity? This workshop will help you connect with your creative self and give you new starting points to move forward. It will be a real treat to spend 3 days in retreatful artmaking doing, what you crave to do - we promise to help you on this creative journey. You deserve it!
This is going to be a transformational workshop in which we dig deep and allow our appreciation of nature and love of creativity to unfold in front of us with a series of artworks.
Art making with close attention to nature is a huge motivator in our own practices and we are delighted to offer you a beautiful workshop of drawing, printmaking, paint, clay work and mixed media so we hope you will join us in this opportunity to dig deep and allow your interests in creative making to come forth!
This wonderful retreat will begin with a walk outside to observe nature first hand. Recording our journey we will take photographs and collect source material which we will incorporate in our artworking practice over the next few days.
On our return to the gallery we will work through some very basic drawing and printmaking techniques to create a number of studies based on beautiful leaf and floral shapes, explore different colour schemes using acrylic paint, watercolors, inks, salt and watercolor pencils. We will create a series of mono prints, using our nature finds. Experimentation with acrylic paint will result in a wonderfully expressive work on canvas. This will be a wonderful introduction to a number of mediums and an opening of our hearts to the expressive nature of floral and botanical studies through the development of a visual story board. Our journey with printmaking will continue with clay to create a nature inspired wall piece and finally a mixed media artwork created on a wood panel that we will seal with wax - using simple encaustic techniques.Nature is a marvellous source to use in our artwork and I hope you’ll join us in this class to create art magic of our own and share with kindred spirits.A focus on expressive work over realism will result in lively and emotive artworks!Who is this class for? Beginner and improver levels while learning more about developing a project, composition and colour theory and technique. This class does not require any previous drawing or painting experience, although those that wish to develop these skills will also apreciate a concentration of this time to practice. This workshop will offer a rewarding experience, therefore, those looking to delve deeper will find these methods cathartic and practice in developing their own ideas for their art.
What will you learn in this class?
YOU WILL BE GUIDED YOU THROUGH SEVERAL TECHNIQUES SUCH AS:
Observation drawing, sketching and recording.
Printmaking, painting, ceramics, mixed media techniques
Composition theory - what to put where and why - how to create a successful and pleasing composition

Research shows that people who are psychologically well rounded and happy have some sort of creative hobby - everyone of them. Getting into a flow takes practice and sometimes finding the zone takes a little while, and so I have developed this workshop to help you begin your journey or an opportunity to really delve in to some creative time. Making art is very theraputic, so why not take a leap out of your usual routine (work, housework etc etc) do what you love and that is good for you for a few days of creative art emersion.
