Workshop Opportunities ‘The Art of Abstraction’

I’m running one and two day workshops which will be focusing on abstract landscape at ‘Anneke’s’, North Parade, Oxford, OX2 6LX. This is a delightful, roomy and light venue filled with flowers and other lovely stuff. All sessions run from 9.30-4.30 each day.

Both workshops are suitable for all levels. Numbers limited to 6 per workshop to allow plenty of 1:1 support.

Two day workshop. The aim of the two-day workshop is for you to get into using paint more expressively. You’ll explore how to abstract elements of your subject and get them on canvas. Working over two days will allow you to make significant progress, with ample time for reflection and experimentation using a variety of media which will be provided. You will mainly focus on finding ways of using oil paint and oil based media.

Dates available:

September    Thursday 26 & Friday 27    Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 
October          Saturday 12 & Sunday 13
November      Saturday 9 & Sunday 10
December      Thursday 12 & Friday 13    Saturday 14 & Sunday 15

One day workshop. These workshops will provide an opportunity for you tobuild confidence in your technique, find new ways of interpreting what you see and make bold advances in your practice. It will help you experiment with new ways of working and develop a fresh approach to your style, to ‘loosen up’ and increase your repertoire of mark-making. You will be encouraged to draw on observation and intuition, abandon prejudices, re-think composition and move towards abstraction. 

Dates available:

Thursday 10 October, Friday 11 October, Friday 8 November, Monday 11 November

Fees payable in advance: two-day £220, one-day £120, includes refreshments and some materials. For more information or to book, please use contact page.
