Date: 22nd – 24th August 2022
Artist: John Short
Medium: Watercolour painting and drawing
Participants: Maximum 8
Course level: Intermediate and advanced
The aim of this course is for you to consider the practice of watercolour painting through a series of applications and practical demonstrations of unorthodox and non-traditional use of water-based materials.
We will be working in the studio, and I will be bringing along a wide variety of my materials and tools from my studio to show you and demonstrate how they might offer up possibilities in your picture making.
You will be encouraged to experiment in your own paintings in new and unpredictable ways of approaching this medium, with a fresh eye, hopefully in ways that you have never experienced before. We will be using the village of Dunmore East as the subject matter, of course, for all of this project work so make sure to include your smart phone in your material list.
I have given a few similar workshops with Artform, and they are always busy, challenging and fun.
*The course take place in Artform modern light-filled seaside studio with 24hr access for each visiting artist and around the beautiful coastal village of Dunmore East, with artist accommodation and options for artists’ non-painting partners.
