Express Yourself!

Express Yourself Continues!

After we exploded into action with Expressive Art earlier this term with landscapes, figures, and portraits, we are now continuing with abstract compositions, narratives and still life – learning new techniques, different materials and focusing on a wide variety of artists who make art full of expression, emotion, and atmosphere. At the end of this term you will plan and develop your own expressive artwork in the medium of your choice.

All workshops are suitable for any new and emerging artists who wish to push their techniques and imagery further and also for those who have more creative experience.
