You are welcome to bring some of your own objects, such as, branches of winter berries, pine tree branches, pine cones, images of birds and animals, snowy landscapes – anything (including images) that will inspire you to explore form, colour and pattern. 

  • You will produce short and long studies which you can use as Christmas presents;
  • Focus will be on exploration of various painting approaches, such as, sketching with a brush, wet on wet, layering, grisaille, pointillism and watercolour and ink. 
  • You will be encouraged to observe and produce a personal response.
