Tuesdays are Zoom days and what better way to start a new year than sketching Impressionistically!! This series of 5 workshops takes a closer look at the work of 5 great French artists through the Impressionist era. We’ll have great fun replicating their mark-making and colour choices on some modern day images of our own. It’s amazing how much you will learn from these techniques and how it can help you develop your own sketching style 2 centuries later!
These online sessions are for a small group only and take place via Zoom where you can participate in ‘real time’, ask questions and get feedback. Even if you are unable to join the Zoom the video from the workshop is recorded and will be available after the event to anyone pre-registered in advance.
