Abstract Drawing (DRWGw166-3)

The very first drawings we ever do as children start off as abstract mark-making or scribbles. This workshop focuses on using lines and marks to make abstract compositions that are as fresh and lively as those first scribbles of a child. The afternoon will consist of three different drawing projects that involve developing scribbles into a drawing; using a geometric design as structure and working with the process of ink washes to create an expressive abstract surface. Suitable for beginners.

Oil Painting Primer (PNTGw167-6)

In this one-day workshop you will explore the enormous potential of oil paint. Oil paint is a slow-drying and very forgiving medium, ideal for beginners because you can redo any brushstroke. Smelly solvents are a thing of the past; we will explore non-toxic methods for thinning paint and cleaning brushes. The focus will be on creating the lush, textured mark-making, rich colour, and subtle effects that only oil paint can achieve. This workshop is open to painters of all levels, from beginners to experienced acrylic or watercolour painters who are curious about working in oils. Suitable for beginners.
