Come and explore new creative painting techniques that will allow your design sense to blossom forth.
You will learn how basic abstract graphic arts concepts relate to how we perceive the world around us. You will then have a better idea of how to make use of the visual colours, values and shapes that our brains see to paint your own vision.
You will also learn how to better manipulate the paint, brushes, canvas, etc. to create your own design that captures that personal creative vision.
Each day will start with a demonstration by Mike, followed by individual counselling and critiquing with each painter to help you find your own muse and break that artist block all artists come up against.
