Each week you will be introduced to an abstract artist and led step by step into the artist’s process of art making in a fun exploratory class. Literally you become an abstract painter for the night! Some of the artists explored are Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron, Rose and Roger Hilton, Jackson Pollock, Grace Hartigan, Gerhard Richter, Perle Fine, Howard Hodgkin, Victor Pasmore and Joan Mitchell. All you need is a sketch book and all other materials and refreshments are provided. In the summer term you will have fun working in the gorgeous landscaped private garden of The Colour Factory.
The Colour Factor has been the home of Rosie’s art courses since 2016. Her classes are popular and offer a rich learning experience that build confidence within a vibrant art community. Each term she will guide you step by step through a range of materials and processes from pencils, charcoal to acrylic and oil. Learning is studying the process of a master painter with historical context in the form of a talk and short film. The learning process begins with exercises in drawing and lots of demonstrations that lead you into creating a wonderful painting.
Rosie is a teacher and practicing artist with over 30 years experience. You can see her on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year, episode 4. Do take a look at her website and instagram account for the latest photos from her classes and news on her art work.
