‘Amanda’s Other Art’
This workshop will be exciting, you will experience a change from the regular watercolour workshop. The very versatile Amanda Hyatt, who is known primarily as a watercolourist, also works in oil, pastel, charcoal and inks. She is going to be taking you in a workshop which will ‘expand your thinking about art’ by allowing the student to experience several mediums thus allowing the student to ‘ find their own way’. At the end of the week, the student will have several new and exploratory paintings, each allowing for their own self-expression, which is the requirement for making the step from hobby artist to creative artist.
Day One: A traditional Watercolour, landscape (morning) and waterscape (afternoon)
Day Two: A pastel still life (morning), pastel figure from life (afternoon)
Day Three: A charcoal, watercolour, and ink life drawing (all day)
Day Four: A Chinese ink and watercolour, landscape (morning), still life (afternoon)
Day Five: A collage, pastel, ink, and watercolour combined in an abstract.
Be prepared for a great workshop with a dynamic tutor. The requirement list will be sent to each participant closer to the workshop. A model fee will be included in the requirements list. Open to the experienced artist, 18 years and over.
