This event is brought to you in partnership between Handmaker's Factory and Thea Bates. Art Winter School 2017 is the third event in the Seasonal Art School Series 2017.
Make art you will love!
ART WINTER SCHOOL 2017 captures and celebrates exploration and creativity, bringing out your inner artist and fueling your passion to make art.
For three days, feed your creativity with like-minded people. Be curious, try new things, feel freedom in your art and learn from the open studio process. We will start the weekend with a photo and scavenger walk in the local area. We will then use images taken and materials collected in our work throughout the weekend. The work you create will combine the techniques below:
You are encouraged to bring your own inks, charcoal, pencils, pastels and paper, however basic materials and papers will be provided. Please do not bring oil paints. We will also use smart phones/ipads to get up close and personal with our work.
We will end the weekend with a mini exhibition bubbles!
Thea Bates of Art in an Hour is a qualified art teacher, visual artist and creative practitioner. She loves to engage people in their own and sometimes suppressed creativity, offering strategies and techniques that leave tentative artists surprised and amazed by what they can do. As well as teaching art in community settings, she loves to work with corporates, local government and small businesses, where they see the benefits to their staff wellbeing, and therefore to their business.
Art in an Hour is essentially a ‘juicy morsel of creative mindfulness’, to which Thea brings her extensive experience both within and outside the creative arts genre, to support participants achieve extraordinary results. One hour can become many hours; art before breakfast, art on the train. Art anywhere, anytime.
