Two day painting workshop in West Pembrokeshire with Kate Freeman

Painted papers and mark making for Collage


10am - 5pm, two consecutive days

An opportunity to really get involved, this two day workshop incorporates all of the themes explored in the half day and one day classes ( please refer to previous listings for details ).

We begin each day with some 'warm-up' drawing and mark making exercises, before launching in to Colour Mixing, Experimental Techniques, Collage and Composition.

Each subject will be clearly explained, and Kate will demonstrate techniques, and provide assistance or advice as required!
All of the skills aquired during these sessions are applicable to students' own work, whether Abstract or more 'traditional' subject matter.

We will be investigating the 'nuts and bolts' of making paintings, not "painting pictures"!

We use a variety of tools to apply paint, and there are plenty of other media available to experiment with, including inks, graphite, pens and oil pastels.

Many of the exercises are great block busters for those days when you want to paint, but don't know where to start . Experienced painters who wish to "get out of a rut" will also benefit.

Spending two days dedicated to art making enables students to develop particular aspects of the painting process that are relevant to their own personal practice.

Each day culminates in a wine o'clock seminar discussion of the work produced.

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 painting materials and papers are included, and each student will receive an A4 sketchbook, to be filled with visual notes and ideas as we go along.

Great coffee, tea and home made cake for breaks... Delicious vegetarian lunch... and a glass of wine at the end of the day!

I have a large collection of Artist monographs and other art books which students are welcome to browse, and refer to during sessions.

I met Kate while on holiday in Pembrokeshire. The amazing scenery etc enspired me but I had little confidence in using colour in my art. After seeing how well she used colour in her art I decided to do the half day colour course with Kate, playing with colour and learning how to use acrylic and mixing, tools to use etc. I loved it and am inspired to take on more colour projects.
Kate it lovely and very good at guiding you down whatever route you want to take to improve your skills.
Great coffee and cake too 😊 I'd recommend Kate to anyone at any skill level. And hope one day to return and learn/play more.

Response from Coach House Studio:

Thank you Mark! Our session was great fun, not least because we had so much to talk about. As your “guide” through the various colour experiments, your enthusiasm was very rewarding. The way you interpreted my suggestions resulted in some really original, exciting pieces.
Fantastic that you’ve carried on experimenting and making new work since our afternoon in the studio. I look forward to your next visit to the Coach House.
