Capturing a still life table scene, flowers, fashion or any other objects of interest - each persons perspective and style is unique. The workshop allows each person to boldly experiment, loosen up their creative side and learn drawing techniques in the process.
A typical workshop will start with creative warm ups, then go into a longer session using observational drawing, painting, print making and collage.
Materials include pens, watercolours, collage from old, recycled paper materials. No previous experience is needed and everyone is welcome.
Why an Art Workshop?
Drawing and painting has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, which is especially needed in a world today where we are constantly distracted and overwhelmed. A creative workshop allows for connection between the attendees and a great way for individuals to express themselves, whilst also escaping from the noise of the world for a couple of hours.
Each persons style is different and with observational art, each angle is unique to that person. There is no right or wrong, which makes this an enjoyable and relaxing experience.
Workshops can be booked for private parties or corporate events. They can be tailored to your group or business. Please contact Alex to discuss further.
"Alex - this workshop was a total dream. Chill vibes, great company... but above all really confident and supportive steer from you. The warm-up activities were spot on and got us all in the flow - and the main activity was just brilliant. I have a new found love of collage and will never look at magazines the same way again!... It really was a chance to switch off too and get totally immersed in our creativity.
I loved every minute and would 100% come to another workshop of yours again. Thank you for a lovely afternoon"
