Previous workshops have focused on how to paint the ocean, coastal vegetation and sunsets/sunrises. To compliment Caroline’s solo exhibition at The F Project Gallery this January, this workshop encompasses all three. Learn a range of mark-making using brush and palette, find out which colours work well – including some surprising ones – it’s time to get experimental! This day is about having fun, gaining confidence in your abilities and learning some new skills. It’s perfect for everyone from complete beginners to experienced artists.
