[Paint media, beginners to improvers]
If you enjoy painting big and bold and loosely…… or want to….,check out painting with a wedge /spatula! Ideal for abstracts/abstracted, layering glazes and mixed media work they allow a very direct response to the materials with dynamic energy .They are addictive but have, like everything, a learning curve to get the most from them. Starting playfully, we’ll see where twisting and turning the tool can take us as we learn to control the beautiful shapes that emerge before our eyes. We’ll progress onto layering and building colours to produce backgrounds or finished art works. Discovering how to ‘knock back’ and reserve certain areas. By the end you’ll be swooping and back flipping with the best of them, and have probably found a new fun way to create.

Never has our need for personal creativity been so highlighted as during lockdown and the ongoing change to life that many are still experiencing. Creativity aids our wellbeing, giving us relaxing activity, pleasure in our achievements, good company, enhanced self esteem, to name but a few benefits. We continue to work safely, in a large, airy, light studio.
Our in house art tutor, Liana, teaches the range of traditional and experimental art courses to get you into your creativity ‘groove’. With her usual warmth, patience and humour she’ll take you further than you expected to go, perhaps discovering hidden talent and an absorbing hobby and friends along the way.
Many of us are held back from trying by criticism or harsh comments in our youth. As an experienced life coach and therapist, she’ll also show you how to lessen your self criticism and negative mind chatter so that your painting has the best chance flourish. Sometimes we get in our own way.
Watch out for the new Saturday workshops from September and the life coaching work shops coming in the New Year, in the meantime one to one art or life coaching/therapy sessions from Liana are also available, please contact the box office.
