Vicki's Upcoming Events and Workshops
Ever wanted to go sketching outdoors but don't know where to start? This workshop is just what you need!
We'll spend the first day in the studio, tackling some fundamental drawing techniques before venturing out to enjoy sketching the characterful medieval town.
After working out some practical considerations like where to sit and what materials to take, we'll look at ways to draw buildings and figures along with things to look for in a composition. Then we will explore Bridgnorth's many beautiful views, finding quiet corners and fascinating places to study.
Take your control and understanding to a higher level with this 3 day intensive course on colour theory and colour mixing.
With a technical, academic approach to colour, first, learn to accurately identify and mix colours using a reliable method that works every time.
Then discover how to use colour to enhance your paintings in this useful practical workshop.
Focusing on how we can employ colour within our work we will learn about the creation of harmonies and how to create a ‘palette’ that will express the mood of your painting more clearly.
Suitable for learners in all media. Some previous painting experience is necessary to get the most from this course.
Ever wondered why one artwork sings whilst another just looks ordinary? The answer is in black and white!
‘Notan’ is a Japanese word used to describe the balance of light and shade in a painting. Although most of us are unaware of it, the pattern of light and dark in a picture is the single most influential factor in our appreciation of any artwork. Through a series of exercises and demonstrations we will learn how to design successful pictures every time.
This workshop is a real must for anyone looking to improve their understanding of how to make a picture feel balanced, interesting and memorable.
Using ‘notan’ you can determine whether a picture will succeed or fail in just 2 minutes!
Suitable for learners of all levels in all media, this workshop is also excellent for photographers and designers.
