Course Structure 

Grab the opportunity to develop your own art skills and techniques through experiential tutor-led workshops. 

About the workshops

My short art and drawing workshops will teach you the essence of what drove these artists to draw and paint with passion, what they contributed to the art world, the reason behind their fame, and most importantly what you can learn to help you improve your own art and drawing.

The workshops will not teach you how to copy paintings by Cezanne, Matisee, Monet or Picasso to create look-alike pictures, or how to copy their style of painting. 

The main focus

The main focus of the short art and drawing workshops is to guide you to explore and develop your own personal skills and techniques.  You will be supported and guided to create inspired, personal, creative drawings that help you develop your own drawing or painting style and guide you along your journey towards becoming the kind of artist you want to be.

Context

Even now in the 21 century contemporary artists are still reflecting on the issues Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, and Monet tried to resolve and are finding new innovative solutions to the same visual art ‘problems’.  Join us on these exciting drawing workshops and travel a creative journey to discover your own creative solutions.
