In a nutshell

This evening class offers you the opportunity to experience the pleasure of creativity and allows you to reconnect with your art practice. The course is structured to allow you to fully realise your ambitions within your art practice by focusing on a new project, developed via a guided walk with like-minded people, including photography, drawing, painting, discussion and idea development.

This course is for...

... People with a creative flair
... Those with a keen interest in photography, walking and art
... Anyone who wants to reignite a creative spark

Course content

The classes will involve an informal and open discussion about your art practice with emphasis on previous work and idea development. There will be a guided walk in the beautiful local countryside, where you'll have the opportunity to photograph and sketch the environment, nature, flora and landscape. You'll also collect natural materials for workshops.

Some of the classes will be workshop based, exploring the cyanotype photographic process, and you'll embark on an illustration/drawing workshop. Both sessions will use imagery, items and sketches from the walk.

The course will allow you to explore your creative imagination via watercolour painting. You'll have the opportunity to paint and create using inspiration from the course to create something you will treasure. The course will culminate with an informal and open discussion about your art practice with emphasis on new ideas developed over the duration of the course.
