Driven to abstraction
Ever wanted to unleash your inner Bridget Riley or Pablo Picasso?
This fun, one day course will give you ideas for creating an abstract painting. With the emphasis on developing your own style, we’ll be looking at how simplifying forms, exploring scale and perspective, and using colour, texture and mark making will unlock your imagination to produce dynamic paintings.
Workshop numbers are restricted to a maximum of 10 which means you’ll receive plenty of individual tuition.
