John Ruskin inspired drawing. Graphite and ink on brown paper
Sat 22 April 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Come and join myself and Lea Williams for a relaxed day of creative inspiration and drawing exploration.
Drawing doesn't have to be boring and safe with a pencil. Let us show you how to develop exciting expressive artwork and begin to really 'see' the potential in all the subjects around you.
The workshop takes place in Rebecca's studio at the stunning Winnington hall.
ALL MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED
Winnington in its colourful past was a school for girls during the 1850/60’s. During this time the world renowned art critic John Ruskin was a frequent visitor to the hall, he spent time teaching the young ladies drawing and watercolour and many other subjects such as biblical studies.
The Orangery would have been a light and warm and ideal room within the hall with beautiful views of the grounds lawns and trees. We can certainly see why! As an artist it is a perfect room for creating.
The day will include an Introduction to John Ruskin and his role at winnington, a chance to view the building with its ornate architecture and interior decoration.
We will take inspiration from ruskins architectural drawings and his drawing style as well as following some of his methods from his famous book ‘the elements of drawing’
Both artists will perform demonstrations on drawing style alongside step by step guidance of techniques with plenty of one to one tuition to support you as you work
Open to beginners. Tuition will be tailored to suit all artistic abilities.
Having the experience of 2 professional tutors mean that both artists are able to offer their unique guidance and input. This means More one to one tuition and a complementary and expansive drawing knowledge combined.
NO NEED TO PRINT THE EVENT TICKET OUT AS I WILL HAVE THIS BEFORE THE DAY
PLEASE NOTE REFRESHMENTS ARE PROVIDED BUT BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH
There is plenty of parking and you can enter the studio via the white door that is circled on the left side of the image at the side of the building. The Orangery is highlighted in red.
