In this workshop, explore the pure pleasure of mark-making, colour and textures without all of the usual hang-ups and restrictions that often hinder peoples creativity.
Through a series of fun exercises, participants will see how diving into the world of abstraction can help to loosen up your painting style and fire the imagination and sense of adventure.
To begin, you will work through some simple activities designed to get everyone relaxed and to remove any worries and inhibitions that might normally hold you back from expressing yourself. Next, there will be a few techniques that should help to promote ideas for those times when you feel the dreaded “artist’s block” coming on.
The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment plus by the end of the session, you will have a collection of wonderfully colourful and aesthetic images.
