First Steps in Art is a workshop specially designed for people who are completely new to drawing or painting. So, what can you expect from your first art workshop?
Firstly a warm and friendly welcome, a cuppa and a chat when you arrive. There will be time to introduce yourself to the other members of the group and as the teacher for the day I will be taking time to help people settle in.
Then, an overall introduction to the day and what we will be up to. Clear instructions on each lesson and how to use the materials
Each lesson will be introduced in turn with plenty of guidance on what to do. I’ve some interesting and exciting things planned for us which are geared to help build your confidence quickly. As an example, we will use watercolours to paint stripes on a piece of paper and then cut it up to make a simple collage picture by sticking it on coloured card.
We take an hour for lunch allowing time for a break.
Group size is limited to 8 people so there is plenty of opportunity for one to one discussion and support from me.
Finally, you take home the results of your painting for the day.
