This 3 day painting masterclass course will take place indoors. It is a combination of abstraction and representation, using photographs as source material but also allowing the unpredictability of paint to guide you and make ‘happy accidents’ happen. This course is suitable for all levels – beginners, intermediate and advanced, with plenty of time for one-to-one tuition with the mentor.
In her studio practice, Ann uses her own photographs as preparatory sketches and references. She will demonstrate how photographs can be used as a source material for painting and to help develop memory and imagination. Therefore participants should bring photographs that are meaningful to them as a starting point to create their own personal painting.
The 3 days will be packed with information for participants as Ann will demonstrate many different painting techniques and explain ways to use the different oil painting mediums – toxic and non toxic. She will encourage participants to get outside the traditional method of only painting with a brush.
Ann will also cover colour theory and encourage participants to choose colours according to their own instincts and intuition.
The workshop/residency with Ann Quinn, takes place in Artform seaside, light-filled studio with 24hr access for each visiting artist. Artform also provides an artist accommodation package. Details on art materials required to participate in the course will be provided after signing up to the course.Artform also provides an artist accommodation package.
