Join me in my beautiful studio in Wembley Park, set in the newly built arts sector of the Wembley Park development. My space is minimal and peaceful with all the facilities for you to join me in my space and enjoy a mindful drawing.
Duration: 1 hour
This is a taster session which is based on the following longer classes:
We will be using inks with a brush and various warm-up techniques in pen and charcoal which I have adopted over time in order to understand art as an expressive avenue anyone can adopt. I will guide the participants through the first a series of warm up techniques to loosen the mind and understand making marks and strokes. From there we will experiment with ink and brush exploring forms and understanding the way the ink/colours moves as well as the shapes and detail of the our subjects. The last section of the workshop moves to using a pen to explore line drawings, learning to hone the skills we have developed over the course of the class and concluding with much more detailed drawings. Each stage includes a short demonstration and guidance throughout, as required individually, as well as to the entire group but allows each participant enough time to explore the various mediums.
You do not need to have any experience to join, all welcome to participate.
Materials: Every participant will be presented with a selection of hand-picked materials to use during the class and to take home with them to continue to use, including ink, a brush, a pen, charcoal, various papers and a presentation folder.
Refreshments: I will provide biscuits/snacks and tea/coffee/water.
