Samford and Surrounds Arts Trail and Open Studios 2022
The Samford and Surrounds Arts Trail and Open Studios is now in it's 8th year. I will be taking part again this year. My studio will be open for the first 3 weeks of the Trail and I'd love to see you. This year I will be showing a lot of new work. I have been very busy since last June with several IG online challenges plus taking part in CVP 2022 as an alumni. The Strada Easel challenges in September and January invloved an en plein air painting everyday for the full month. I am almost finished with the #100dayproject. I have drawn from life in my garden every day since February. Just in case I didn't have enough to do I have also produced a play piece in acrylic every day too. During the Trails I will be running workshops and the details are here. I have learnt so much from my 100 day project and am looking forward to sharing it all in my Amazing Acrylic workshop. I have run my encaustic workshop many times now. I love sharing everything I know about this beautiful media. If you have joined me before, I will show new techniques and help you refine your process. Details and booking are on my website. https://www.thearttrain.shop
Term Two Guided Painting 2019 is a little different. I ran a Van Gogh kid's workshop over the Easter break which was a huge success, so I thought why let the kids have all the fun. Students paint their own Van Gogh with a choice of two of his most famous paintings, “Sunflowers” or “Starry Night” in a step by step style class.
Booking and paying on line for classes was my original plan for the new website. For the longest time that seemed too far fetched but here we are, finally.
A friend had suggested I sell classes on line. She is very enthusiastic and positive, she even thought I should supply the paint. Initially I wasn’t very keen, although I kept nodding and smiling, she is very hard to say no to.
