2 Day Course Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October
All materials are Included
An exciting opportunity to make your own prepared collaging papers to form the basis of your work and make it your own. Monoprinting over the top of your collage will bring your image together with a wonderful quality of line and texture, shape and colour.
A Room with a View has always been an intriguing subject for artists and lends itself to endless interpretations. A view through a window, or open door becomes part of a narrative – the viewer will always wonder what is beyond. The view can be real or imagined – somewhere where you would really like to be at this moment. The interior might show items of furniture (Vuillard), a still life on a table ( Matisse) or plants on a window sill (Mary Fedden). You might go back in time, stay in the present or fast forward into the future, but whatever you choose, it will be unique combination of inside and out.
This course is open to anyone, regardless of experience. You will learn many techniques and with Karenza on hand to inspire and guide, you will produce some surprising, beautiful work.
Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea both days
About the Artist
Karenza is a well established artist who exhibits her work mainly in and around East Anglia. She took her Art Foundation Diploma at the Colchester School of Art and a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art at Suffolk College/UEA. Living and working in North Essex, painting and drawing from her studio in the garden, Karenza is also a printmaker and is a member of Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop in Sudbury. She has a fresh approach to her work which often combines monoprint and collage made from her own prepared papers and other media. She also works in watercolour. She explores her love of the East Anglian countryside and coastline with much of the focus on birds and plant life. Other subject matter are flowers, people in the landscape and still life.
What you will need to bring
All materials are included
Since restarting our events in summer 2020, we have introduced changes to the way we operate; including reduced class sizes. The studio has been re organised to enable everyone to remain socially distant whilst at their workstation and hand sanitiser is provided. A large video screen has been mounted on the wall to enable everyone to view demonstrations from where they are working, eliminating the need to gather around the tutor. Lunch is now in the form of a packup to be eaten at your workstation; it may be served hot or cold. Drinks are available all day on a self serve basis.
Please try to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the event begins to allow plenty of time to get settled in. The wearing of face masks is not required whilst at your workstation, but we would ask you to use one when moving about the studio.
