Connecting with nature July 20th & 21st 2020




2 Day Course

Village Hall, Todenham, near Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire, GL56 9PD

July 20th & 21st  2020

2 days of tuition 10am – 4pm – Students will be invited to stay and play if they wish until 5pm on day one without tuition

This workshop is for more experienced artists or for students who have previously attended Ann’s workshops and are looking for further stimulation! You may use any water-based medium– it does not have to be watercolour. The 2 days includes sketching and photography in nearby fields on the first morning. We will make visual notes from the landscape views, hedgerows, trees, wild flowers and bird life. The rest of the time will be spent experimenting indoors, building on the information gathered. The emphasis will be on enjoying the process and not necessarily to create ‘finished’ paintings but to explore ideas and options. You will be encouraged to work loosely and use your imagination to create an expressive, ‘towards abstract’ style with which to interpret nature subjects.

Lunch includes a vegetarian option but if you are vegan, dairy or gluten-free your choice may be limited and you may wish to bring something with you to supplement the lunch provided. There will be a maximum of 14 people on each course.

Please bring your own painting and sketching materials. A list will be sent in your confirmation letter along with full information about the course and a website to help you find accommodation.

A link to your confirmation letter will be emailed to you when you have booked your place. Please download this upon receipt and keep it safe – we don’t send out any further reminders (but you may download the letter again up until the day of the course).
