About this event

Whether you are a beginner or a total pro, this Thursday evening , we explore your more colourful side with this easy to paint, water colour class. Switch off from your busy week and learn something new. You can connect with yourself and others by using drawing as your muse in a bid to keep your creativity healthy and your innovation strong. Unwind for an hour and enjoy the benefits that drawing provides as it destresses you and improves your hand-eye coordination.

Creating anything with your hands is incredibly therapeutic and calming and we are excited to help guide you in getting completely lost in your own work. There will be room for personal expression as well as a guided step-by-step video demonstration with a live professional artist. Don’t expect masterpieces just yet! But if you are a Da Vinci in disguise, we fully encourage you to share your talent. Drawing takes time, so enjoy the process and see what you can learn.

THE INSTRUCTOR, CHINA JORDAN

Originally from Grimsby, China studied Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon and has been a commissioned Artist for around 11 years. Throughout her training, she has studied with various grandmasters along the way and covered mediums such as pencil, oil paint, and pastel. She specialises in classical realism and portraiture and now teaches in various locations. Having managed several art galleries in Mayfair, she decided to set up her own business, ArtistAnd, and focus on using Art for venues and businesses outside of the Gallery environment. ArtistAnd provides traditional oil paintings for branding, marketing, and collaboration. They specialise in classical styles and replica’s and combine them with brand ideas to create innovative and exciting pieces without the price tag of an Artwork from a gallery. They aim to bring painting and drawing to business and also deliver drawing workshops to companies as a tool for engagement, creative problem solving, and team building. With the strong connection between mental wellbeing and art, there is no better time to make this art form as accessible as possible.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

We will work on one painting this time and explore different styles. China will bring us an interesting artwork to recreate and we can’t wait for you to join us!
