Workshop Details

Creating Charcoal Artwork for all levels- Still life

In this workshop we shall be learning the fundamentals of charcoal drawing, starting with drawing from still life set ups, which will include manmade and natural forms.

From this, will shall be able to include coloured pastel pencils and other paint media using a limited colour palette, to develop our own style.

About the Artist

The passion and inspiration for Miriam's artwork is the investigation and response to natural forms: their complexities of line, texture, shape and colour, represent a uniqueness which she aspires to evoke and visually debate in her work. She experiments with various media, building up surfaces in certain areas of the paintings using sand, collage materials, oils and oil pastels: leaving other parts of the painting simpler with just drawn black lines. She explores the use of the colour in her images by instinct, sometimes to compliment and other times to oppose, producing diverse results.

Miriam studied and completed B.A. Hons Degree in Graphic Arts and Design at Leeds Metropolitan University in 1994. She exhibits regularly and works in Leeds and the Yorkshire area, facilitating art workshops organisations such as The West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds City Council, Education Leeds, private care homes and approved premises.
