Optional trips out

– A Wine tasting can be arranged for the interested…I think this would be great fun!

– A visit to Florence can easily be arranged too and I will be organising this for our day off when there … a great chance to visit amazing art galleries and possibly sketch in town

– The chance to visit picturesque Tuscan villages and paint or sketch there 

Painting experience

Ali will be teaching watercolour and mixed media with some lessons based in the studio and others in the beautiful grounds and area surrounding the accommodation 

There will be a mix of whole group teaching and individual tuition. She will teach all day apart from the one day where we get the opportunity to visit Florence. Ali teaches every subject going ….and will introduce you to lots of lots of exciting techniques.  

For those who don’t know her….Ali is known for her enthusiasm and love of colour!

This is the final ceramic tile I made at Poynton pottery

Sketch made in France, then clay tile rolled out and textures added… fired…added cobalt oxide (and sponges it away!) ….and finally Bristol glaze!

I’ve learned a lot with this process

This was my demo’ piece for working from a sketch and using one line only to simplify the drawing at my painting holiday at the Finca el Cerrillo.

Then I added a wash of bright colours.

Great ways to help loosen up.Image attachment

Three different paintings from three different students choosing the same interesting doorway from our trip out to Salares in Andalucia.

We were looking for interesting textures. They’ve nailed it!

Fabulous work….I’m very proud of them all.
