Loose Floral Abstract Paintings Transferred onto Fabric - Sat 2nd April 2022, 10am - 5pm, Nature in Art, Gloucestershire. From £45
A relaxing and fun filled day creating loose abstract floral paintings with sublimation inks and then heat pressing them onto fabrics.
Working from life you will spend the morning creating interesting fluid floral paintings. The paint acts like ink and watercolour and so will blend and disperse in a very magical way. You will be taught how to create quick, loose and free abstract florals which can also be applied to other subjects.
In the afternoon you will experiment with transferring these images onto fabric, using a heat press and irons. You will be able to take your fabrics home to frame, to work on further with embellishment or simply use the day as a chance to unwind and learn something new.
This is an ideal class for the complete beginner (in both painting and sublimation inks), it’s also ideal for painters who want a chance to free up their painting and try abstraction.
What is taught in this class can easily be carried on at home without the need for high tech equipment.
Finding the Joy in Painting by Creating Abstracts - Saturday 2nd July 10am - 5pm, Nature in Art, Gloucestershire From £45
A day of learning how to enjoy the process of painting so that you can unwind, relax and have fun. Painting can be very therapeutic, but the enjoyment can quickly disappear if you find yourself frustrated with what you produce.
This class is about reintroducing you to the fun of painting, loosening your painting style and teaching you how to take the pressure off the end result. It will teach you how to be inspired to create relaxing abstract paintings but also how to feel relaxed when creating them.
Through guided exercises you will learn different painting techniques, as well as practical tips to free up your painting style. We will explore different materials, surfaces and subjects, painting to music and other ways to help you unwind and take pleasure in painting.
There will be laughing as well as moments of calm and reflecting. A fun filled day learning something new and giving you the chance to relax.
Suitable for all abilities, even those who have not picked up a paintbrush before.
