WORKSHOP 1: ‘Up Close & Mono’ Creative Natures. Monday 10th June 2019 10am-3pm £35 followed by optional discussion and feedback of previous work.
In this intensive day, we’ll spend the first short while gathering inspirational natural materials such as leaves, bark, branches and feathers near to the stables to bring back to the studio for close creative study of form, texture and tone in monochrome. Building on skills learnt in previous workshops we’ll use graphite pencil, charcoal and ink to produce finished artworks and also sketches for your further development at home. There’ll be a variety of materials on hand including drawing boards and a selection of papers, but please bring your favoured things along too, if you wish. You’ll also need a packed lunch or to buy things locally. Everyone’s encouraged to use a sketchbook regularly between these Creative Natures sessions, so by all means bring yours along if you wish to discuss your work, and be given ideas for progression over a cuppa at the end of the workshop.
A fun and lively half day session out and about for those who’ve been on a Creative Natures charcoal sketching workshop before, and others keen to give this wonderfully expressive medium a try. We can easily get stuck and feel demotivated or overwhelmed when trying to decide on how to tackle a subject, thinking ‘Where do I start? That’s why this charcoal sketching workout workshop is the ideal antidote – you’ve no time to think! Following some energising creative warm ups to get the juices flowing, we’ll be taking short walks while travelling light, producing several sketches in between, working fast and loose. All materials supplied, but if bringing your own sketchbook, size A3 is recommended.
Just get in touch, and I’ll book you in!
