Description

This course will appeal to those with an interest in watercolours, abstract art, modernism, composition, expressive painting, landscape and urban art. ‘Give the paint a chance. Give the brush a chance.’ John Marin. Many artists love the idea of moving away from traditional representational art and enjoying the freedom that abstraction offers; bold colour, expressive brushstrokes, novel forms and textures that excite the eye and stir the mind. But they also know that waving their hands around in the air and hoping for the best just doesn’t work! Taking inspiration from the work of early American abstractionist, John Marin, this one-day course offers the adventurous watercolourist a route map to the creative freedom they’ve been seeking. Tutor Information David Chandler's weekly art classes have been running for fifteen years and are attended by more than eighty students.
