Garden Painting Workshop with Ceri Allen
Saturday 10 June, 10am to 4pm (including lunch break)
Join acclaimed artist and tutor Ceri Allen in our own secret garden for this one-off workshop exploring the ideas and techniques that great painters have used to depict gardens.
The artists discussed in this full-day workshop include Monet, Pissarro, Cezanne, Kandinsky, Matisse amongst many others.
Weather permitting, this workshop will be held outside in our own garden here at Florence Arts Centre. It is suitable for artists with a little experience and you'll need to bring along your preferred paints and/or drawing materials, a portable easel and a stool (if you have one). You are also welcome to bring along your own sketches or images which may be useful for working indoors should the weather change, or find suitable subjects amongst the books in Florence's art library.
