Join Artist, Becki Clark for a mindful and creative day embracing the inspiration of nature and the season with Gouache paints. Becki will introduce the materials that will be used in the session and work through a range of activities and techniques to help you gain confidence with the gouache paints and brush from colour mixing, washes, creating textures, exploring the different states and effects of the paint, and moving onto creating colour explorations inspired by the season. Becki will also work through techniques for capturing seasonal flowers in an abstract style that is perfect to help beginners gain confidence with and explore. 

The session is designed with complete beginners in mind, no previous creative experience is required just an interest in learning something new and embracing creative mindfulness. Becki will be on hand with lots of tips, tricks and you'll be able to take your paint set home to carry on with your new creative skill. 

This is a one day course taking place on Friday 7 June 2024, 10:00am - 4:00pm.
