Class Description

In this two-day painting workshop, you will create paintings full of vitality; deepening your knowledge of colour and spontaneous expression. Gary will encourage you to travel into the unknown, to make new discoveries with paint.

A purposeful exploratory approach will be central. You will have the luxury of space to go on your own journey and discover yourself anew.

In ways that suit your style, find how to become more open to chance and serendipity - to learn to paint in the moment.

With an emphasis on expressive and intuitive use of form, both figurative and abstract, this transformative workshop suits all individual levels of skill and experience. All are welcome!
