- inspired by plants!

Mondays 10.00am - 1.00pm (3 hours with breaks)

This course is suitable for those with some experience with paint and who have an interest in semi-abstract or abstract imagery.

We’ll be using creative and experimental drawing media and techniques to explore fascinating, unusual and exotic plant forms. We’ll study macro plant / cell forms, twisted root / plant structures, trees, flower / plant decay, and more, developing these drawings, using further media / techniques, into abstract artwork.

Gesso and plaster surfaces and textures, various acrylic / watercolour mediums, collage, print, ink and many other mixed media will be included, and we’ll be exploring a range of paper / card to work on.

We’ll make reference (for creative drawing techniques as well as abstract practice) to several artists such as Sarah Simblet, Julia Trickey and numerous other contemporary / historical artists.
