2-Day Art Workshop
Creative Responses to Coastal Scenery
Thursday 5 and Friday 6 September 2013, Charmouth Village Hall, Wesley Close
10am ? 3pm £60
We will start by looking at inspirational coast?themed work, by contemporary artists.
As we go out with sketchbooks, we will be drawing from the environment in all ways. You will be encouraged to identify the potential of varied subject matter ? elements which are grand and dominant or small and seemingly insignificant, features which may be visually intriguing or have some sort of narrative or symbolic dimension.
During the two days, you may choose to work extensively outdoors, filling (?) a sketchbook or painting on site. You may prefer to bring your sketchbook resources back to the Hall
(5 minutes walk from the beach) to develop ideas which reflect your personal responses.
Individual guidance will be given so that you gain maximum benefit from the two-day experience in this remarkable location. (Alternative material provided if weather conditions prevent outdoor work)

I trained as a teacher at St Luke's College, Exeter, main subject Art and Design, gaining a B Ed(Hons) in 1979.
Inspiration from my college course and a passion for the westcountry landscape (- I have been privileged to live in Devon for much of my life)prompted me to pursue a painting career alongside teaching.
Some of my paintings are representational, some experimental and expressive. My current favoured mediums are watercolour or collage and acrylic.
I have exhibited my work regularly in group, solo and national shows including the annual exhibitions of The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, The Society of Women Artists and the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts.
Since 1995, I have shared my passion for drawing and painting by teaching Art Classes and Workshops to adults, initially in Hampshire and now in Devon,Somerset and Dorset.
