Description

This is a relaxing class for someone who wants to be more expressive with their art making. Fresh flowers will be provided and we will experiment with graphite and coloured pencils.

Great for flower and art lovers!  During the workshop, Carmen will guide you through the different stages of starting an original drawing. She will talk about how to find a composition and layout style that works for you, tricks of the trade, choosing the right colour palette, using the grid as a tool and layering to build depth.

It will be fun and slightly messy, and you will go home with your very own piece of artwork which you will treasure forever.

Carmen was a great teacher - very calm, relaxed and encouraging, and obviously a talented artist herself. She gave a lot of advice and help throughout the workshop. The venue was easy to get to, full of character and there was a lot of space to work. My only suggestion would be to have a selection of flowers do people could choose which they wanted to draw, and to make sure everyone has their own jar as when you were sharing, the arrangement would get moved by the other person, difficult if you are drawing from life rather than a photo.

Carmen was really patient and helpful. Gave us really good tips on how to tackle a drawing from the beginning.

I was a bit rusty and just wanted somewhere to get back into illustration. Loved the class, helpful tips and a friendly group of people. I’ve since bought my own art supplies and i’m looking forward to getting back into it! Thank you :)
