Find your own creativity (2 sessions - 8th & 15th April)

Find your own creativity
X

Description

A slow and relaxing exploration of colour and line. We will mindfully work our way through simple exercises using paint, pencils and pens to help you find your own creative voice. This is a no stress course over 2 mornings (8th & 15th April 2021), encouraging you to be creative over Easter.

The first week (8th April) you will be able to experiment with colour and explore your paint medium. You will have the opportunity to create colour mixes, compare colour combinations and create swatches by laying down paint in different washes.

The second week (15th April) you will review your colour swatches and work into them with lines and patterns. You will be able to develop your own mark making using complementary or contrasting linework.

The course is designed so you can work at your own pace to explore colour and line to find your own creative response.

By the end of the course you will have several pieces of mini artwork to use in your sketchbook, as cards or artist trading cards. You will be able to develop these ideas further at home on your own creative journey.

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

I was given a gift card for Xmas and chose Tricia’s online watercolours for beginners. I enjoyed all the videos and Tricia presented at a very good pace with easy to follow instructions. The projects were set at the right level of difficulty for beginners. The feedback and sharing on the student chatroom was very beneficial with good feedback and constructive ways in how to improve your work. I would recommend this course for anyone who wants to take up watercolour painting or even refresh ones memory on techniques.

Response from Art with Tricia:

I really appreciate the feedback and it's always good to know the course is pitched to the right level for students.
I'm glad you enjoyed the course and I hope to see more of your work on the Student Chatroom as you continue to build on your skills.
I'm looking forward to seeing your next work of art.

Beautiful model and plenty of instructions from Tricia. Made unpleasant by the necessity of having to wear masks all day. Shame the November session has been cancelled, but looking forward to February 2021!

Response from Art with Tricia:

Thanks for your feedback.
Fingers crossed our 2021 courses won't have such strict COVID restrictions and we may be able to dispense with masks.
I'm glad you enjoyed the session otherwise.

This was the first of Tricia's classes that I attended. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. The morning session was quite intense but after the initial warm up sketches, I felt that we had sufficient time to complete more complete drawings. The model, Katie, was fabulous and a perfect subject. Tricia was very helpful to everyone and provided just the right amount of support when needed. I thought I would be inexperienced compared to the other attendees, but this was a very mixed group and everyone was welcoming. The afternoon session was interesting with the opportunity to try two types of printing. Time didn't permit us to try both, but it would be nice to have a go at the second option on another occasion. I look forward to attending future workshop and will be checking Tricia's website for other art classes that I may be able to attend on a more regular basis.

Response from Art with Tricia:

I'm so glad you enjoyed your first session. You are right the group is quite a mix of different abilities and I hope I can make everyone feel part of the group by spending more time with newer students and pushing those with more experience to challenge themselves.

I really enjoyed this course. We had a very natural model and the afternoon was fun. I learnt a new hobby with the lino cutting. Tricia is a very patient and kind teacher who is willing to show you how to put things right when you go wrong. I will certainly be looking out for other courses

Response from Art with Tricia:

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the session and in the afternoon got a taste of a new medium, with the lino cutting!
Todays model was lovely.....I'm sure you'll see her again on another course.

7 December 2019 Life Drawing: The model was absolutely lovely and had some wonderfully graceful poses. The afternoon was enjoyable learning a new art technique and made a good change of pace from the morning as Life drawing is quite an intense day. I find that I could do with a couple of extra breaks in the day when just life drawing.

Response from Art with Tricia:

I'm glad you enjoyed sketching our new model and I'm sure she will be back next year. The afternoon printing was a nice change and everyone produced some great work.
The whole day life drawing is often lots of drawing and even more concentrating! But its great to see how student's skills improve even over one session.

Tricia is a wonderful, patient tutor (and I'm not just saying that because she brings cakes!), who guides us through her courses based on our individual strengths and weaknesses. I have attended several of her classes and always feel there is something fun, new and interesting to learn.

A very different and challenging life course with the musicians expertly playing a wide range of music while posing in natural playing stances.
A clothed life class is new to me but the music evoked a new style to my art.
Tricia was continually behind the scenes dropping words of advice or approval as she observed our efforts.
It was hard work but very enjoyable.
I hope Tricia will bring them together again for us.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Thank you for your support over the past few years, I'm glad to see you are still enjoying coming to Life Drawing each session and are being 'challenged' by the different themes each workshop.

Have been to several of the Life Drawing workshops before and always enjoyed them. This one with musicians was a bit different and quite a challenge as they were clothed and constantly moving! A nice relaxed atmosphere, helpful encouragement and words of advice from Tricia and the music was great. I'd love to have another go at this.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Many thanks for your positive feedback and continued support of the Life Drawing workshops throughout the year.

Always fun, Tricia is a friendly and helpful tutor, who is happy to share her knowledge.
Each workshop sets a new challenge, offering lots of opportunities to push myself and practise my drawing skills.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Claire, thank you.

Interesting and challenging days - especially enjoy the slightly longer poses.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Kate thank you so much.
