Art in The Garden - Fullers Mill Waterside Gardens, IP28

With Lucy Perry and Amanda Sherring
Two Art teachers with decades of experience share their love of gardens and creativity in these exciting and engaging sessions based in beautiful gardens.

Join us for a creative and inspiring day exploring the forms and colours abundant in the Perennial Trust’s gem at Fullers Mill near Bury St Edmunds IP28 6HD.
The day starts with a tea/coffee and the opportunity to meet the tutors and participants before we explore the beautiful gardens at the edge of the River Lark. Our initial activities will be sketchbook based and help participants to warm up observational and recording skills. Armed with new ways of seeing, participants will be encouraged to explore the gardens independently and select a location for a longer study in their chosen medium. Tutors will be supporting participants throughout the day.

Skills we will be developing on the day:
Different ways to create observational sketches. Use of tone. Considerations of scale. Using a view finder to develop compositions. Exploring negative space. Recording colour.

Suitable for beginners and more experienced artists looking for a sociable and engaging en plein air artistic opportunity.

We are attending on a day that the gardens are closed to the general public so we can enjoy them to their full potential...should the weather not be on our side we can work in the bothy but do come prepared for a shower, just in case!
