Field Breaks Art Club
On-line workshops to inspire and motivate
Why not take time out from the lock-down and join in with one of our short on-line art classes? Designed to inspire and motivate, the workshops are relaxed and fun, with an emphasis on experimentation. Each class will introduce a topic or demonstrate a technique for you to try at home. Join in during the class and chat to others for inspiration and ideas.
Motivate yourself with a new idea
Learn something different
Socialise safely with other artists
Classes are designed to be simple enough for you to use the materials you already own. Once you have signed up to a class, you will be sent confirmation and a materials list to prepare for the class. Classes begin at 10:00am in-line with regular Field Breaks in-person classes. There will be a break mid-way and time to chat and swap ideas with the group.
Classes are £10 each, bookable on-line via the links below
We look forward to seeing you!
Please note these classes take part on-line using Zoom. Please make sure you have a secure internet connection and have set your camera so we can see your happy smiling face (no foreheads please!) If you want to join in with the painting, you’ll need to sit at a table/easel within sight of the screen/camera so it’s worth preparing your workspace and materials in good time beforehand to prevent delays. Instructions for joining and a zoom meeting invitation will be sent out to participants before each class.
Friday 7th May 10:00am to 11:30am
Concentrating on a stand of trees for our subject, we will burst into spring with a simple composition that will bring light and shade to your painting. If you are not confident about which colours to choose, we will explore a simple range of natural looking shades that will work for you. What you learn will be a useful toolkit to transfer all your future works of art. Suitable for all abilities.
Monday 10th May 10:00am to 11:30am
Looking at a typical village street scene for inspiration, we will use this to flex our drawing skills and graphic mark making techniques. In this workshop we will look at deep shadows and how to create an impression of depth. If you enjoy smudging and mark making with graphite, this workshop is for you. Suitable for all abilities.
Monday 17th May 10:00am to 11:30am
Join us for a little relaxed sketching with that lovely medium, pen and wash - the perfect method for drawing on location when you are out and about. We will look at using a pen to define objects and pick out the interesting details of a landscape, before going on to use watercolours to bring out the tones and thecapture mood and atmosphere. Suitable for all abilities.
