Colour loves Colour Art Workshop at Hanwell Wine Estate



Enjoy a fun and lively day of painting and creating bold abstract works. You will learn about the power of colour, explore use of line, texture, design along with a variety of starting points to develop a series of exciting paintings. You will spend the morning looking at mixing colour and developing a deeper understanding of how colour behaves when mixed or placed alongside different colours. Then in the afternoon will be using our new found knowledge to create artwork that celebrates colour as the star of the show. Painting in the afternoon can be entirely abstract or with a nod to landscape if people like. The workshop will be held in the spacious art & craft barn, where you can enjoy a relaxing day and be inspired by the space around you. There will be demonstrations and guidance throughout the day to encourage and help you make satisfying and creative work. What is included: All tools and materials are provided.
