'Hen Friends' acrylic painting workshop with Sue Gardner

Hen painting by Sue Gardner


Spend the day with me painting, learning and socialising with a small group of amiable artists. Make new friends, and take home your own original version of my hen friends acrylic painting on canvas. This workshop is suitable for beginners and improvers alike. We will experiment with colour mixing, mark making, splattering, and glazing, to create a lovely group of chickens like this one shown. These are small group sessions of around 8 people, and the emphasis is on enjoyment and confidence building.

We begin at 10 am, and paint till 3 pm with breaks for coffee/tea and cake (provided), and lunch (please bring a packed lunch)

Wear clothing that is fine with the odd dribble of paint, and get ready to have fun, relax and learn.

Parking is available in a small free car park nearby, and at various town car parks - map attached.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials - Paints, table easels, palettes, brushes etc. Light refreshments (coffee, tea and cake/biscuits).
