Cezanne: Jan 2022

“It was a lovely evening. I studied Fine Art in the past and it was like having a masterclass about an artist.”

Rocio P
A fabulous evening workshop introducing people to the reasons Cezanne was such an influential artist at the beginning of the 20th century. I enjoy teaching these workshops as they blend a bit of art theory with creative practical drawing. This is part of a series of 3 Modern artists who changed the course of art and gives participants a chance to explore how Cezanne’s ideas can be applied to making their own personal art.

“It was great thanks. Some historical background information. Outline of Cezanne’s ideas, drawing exercises and a final large drawing.  Good size group with good facilities in a safe space to explore.”
Ruth B
“Fun and informative. Enjoyed doing exercises in shading and hatching.”
Claire F
“It will make you think and experiment, I think you will enjoy it.” My course highlight was “trying something new and different, a new way of looking.”
Linda B
“Enjoyable. Learnt about structure, suited my style of working. Be prepared to be expressive with colour. Fun, enjoyable evening.”
Bernadine O
“I really enjoyed the workshop. Despite having very little previous experience in art, the relaxed approach and the theory helped me to feel free to explore my painting. Simple approach to theory with exercises to really understand it. I really enjoyed it and I can see myself attending future courses.”
Adrian B
“Great introduction to Cezanne’s approach and how it differs to what came before.”
Kelly W
“Mixture of background/theory – Classical – Impressionist – Post Impressionism art. Informative and not too long, followed by a actual painting. Good fun. Brian is personable, helpful, supportive. Good evening.” My course highlight was “getting stuck in and having a go!!”
Peter W
“Brief introduction to artist which then allows you to apply the theory to the still life practical. It was a present and as a non-painter it gave me confidence to do some more.”
