Hampshire is due another wet week, more grey skies, mud everywhere, and half term on the horizon. At Wherwell we have a busy, interesting, warm week ahead with one off classes you can join for the day.
Get out of the house and join in the fun.
Monday, 1st February
Still Life at Wherwell 9.30am – 5.00pm
This is not a taught class – you turn up and paint, or draw, with a mostly friendly group of creative people. Sadly, the pub isn’t open on a Monday, so we bring a picnic lunch and eat together around a still life.
Come for the morning or afternoon at £20/session, or all day for £35.00.
Tuesday, 2nd February
Charcoal to Oil Painting 9.30am – 1.00pm
This is part of a course that is an introduction to oil painting, but you can join us for a special morning.
Tuesday’s class will be about mark making in oil. We will be looking at the marks made by drawing and other media, and seeing how these can be replicated using oils. It should be a fun, experimental morning, exploring different ways to approach a picture.
If you are joining us for the morning it will cost £40, materials included.
Life Drawing 6.00pm-9.00pm
The first Tuesday evening of every month is Life Drawing at Wherwell. There are warm up exercises, the model is directed, but you can do your own thing, more or less.
One session £20
Wednesday, 3rd February
Experimental Drawing 9.30am – 1.00pm
If you can see something, the chances are, you can draw it. What about all the other stuff?
How can you convey the cheesiness of cheese if you can’t smell it?, The unpleasantness of a cold ‘hot’waterbottle in the middle of the night if you can’t feel its chill? What does your back look like? These might not be things that keep you awake at night but once you start to think about them…how do you get answers?
This class is about the senses and trying to represent the unseen.
Wednesday 3rd February, 9.30am-1.00pm at Wherwell Priory Studio
Materials will be provided.
