Experimental Painting and Drawing One Day Workshop

Course overview

This exciting workshop gives artists of all levels the opportunity to experiment with drawing and painting in new ways, including figurative and abstract work with which they might transform their painting practice.

The primary aim of this workshop is to enable students to experiment with a range of materials and techniques that they may not have previously considered. Under the guidance of our experienced tutor and practising artist, spend a fun day experimenting and playing!

You will try out ways to make art through drawing and painting with a range of different materials and will be encouraged to play! You will finish the workshop with a new perspective of how materials and artists can work together and where you see your own place in this process.

These groups are about learning together and finding what inspires us, supporting and enjoying those individual discoveries.

Teaching methods include:

  • Practical activities where you can experiment with different ways of working
  • Tutor demonstrations
  • Individual support where you will be encouraged to be open-minded to develop your creativity, seeing how broadly the group interprets each challenge
