Inspired by Summer in Norfolk ; report from Angela
Sue Williams and John Shave from Sussex have recently visited us to tutor hugely popular courses inspired by the hedgerows, gardens and landscape of Norfolk.
Sue's two day flower painting workshop using acrylic inks showed our students how to branch out and explore the potential of this lovely new media and John's patient and informative landscape painting course in oils attracted some new as well as regular students. The weather was kind and many delightful small oils were achieved working in the studio and outdoors in some of the favourite haunts immortalised by Edward Seago.
Sue and John have agreed to tutor for us again in 2011. Sue will be taking students 'Around the Farm' from July 19th - 21st and also offering a two-day workshop 'The mystery of Venice' in acrylic inks on 10/11th Sept.. So even if you may never have the opportunity to travel to Venice, you can still learn how to achieve its fascinating colours, textures and atmospheric qualities working in our studio.
John will show you how to 'Paint sunshine in UK and abroad’ on July 22/23/24th.
John and Sue will join forces for a one day workshop on Sept 12th 'Extract - Subtract and Abstract' - An introduction into Abstract painting in any medium.
Also in Sept John will be taking you to some lesser known beauty spots for painting in oils the 'Wide skies and watery landscapes' which make up the beautiful and unique Broads scenery. Dates for this are Sept 13 - 16th.
