FRIDAYS at Villa Bologna, Attard
On Fridays we meet in the fabulous grounds of Villa Bologna in Attard.
Every week I give the group a challenge or a way of working that I think is useful and inspirational, then I help everyone to achieve it in their own way. The group includes all abilities, from those who have painted for years to absolute beginners. Working in a group like this means that we can see how others tackle the same subject and how we can try different methods. We work mainly in watercolours, which are just so easy to carry around - and I find them fun and forgiving to work with too. I encourage 'cheating' ie - any method which gives you a good result is fine! You can bring any medium you prefer though.
9.30 am – 12.00pm, 20 euro per session
6 classes for 100 euro
We also have occasional summer night sessions where we paint by moonlight - these are free for my students.
Tuesday evenings in the Majjistral Nature and History Park
As the summer months start to take over, the Sunday afternoon classes will be just too HOT to hold outside in the Park.
Therefore, I am starting sessions on Tuesday early evenings instead, based indoors in the Visitors Centre in the Majjistral Park from 6.30 - 8.30 pm.
The space lends itself to working on group or individual projects and I would like to help you to expand your knowledge, push the boundaries and try new ways of making pictures. This is more practical in a studio space than outdoors, so I'm looking forward to some exciting results!
This is a good opportunity to experiment with materials that you may never have tried before. Like that set of inks that the kids bought you last Christmas? Bring them along and we will see what they can do.
We can play with collage and monoprinting, resists and different supports. I'm really looking forward to having a lot of fun!
I provide boards, water pots, coffee, tea, biscuits (if I remember them) easels, oh, plus lots of inspiration and encouragment.....
20 euro per class, 100 for 6
