No previous painting or drawing experience is needed, just a willingness to get stuck in and enjoy the day with others.
Using watercolours, acrylics, charcoal and pastels we will be creating observational and also free-form imaginative images. Examples of subjects we might like to work on: flowers, shells, still life of found objects, landscape, textural ideas, continuous line drawing and weather permitting we can work outside in the Purley grounds.
The art workshop will have its own dedicated space, The Hive, which includes tea and coffee making facilities and every person attending will have their own working area set up for them when they arrive. All materials will be provided – however you may want to bring an apron in case of paint splashes and spills.
About the workshop organiser: Years ago I went to Art College and studied illustration, printmaking and graphic design. After many years in marketing and PR I retrained to become a Minister and now work full time at Purley Chase.
I was pleased to start painting again at a workshop whilst on retreat in Canada.
These workshops are a chance for me to pick up my brushes once more and share the lovely surroundings of Purley and although not formally trained as an art teacher, I am able to support and encourage everyone who attends based on my previous creative experience.
Note: this date is the next in a series of art workshops – further dates are to be added. If you can’t make the next workshop but would like to register your interest, please give us a call on 01827 712 370.
