It was my pleasure to run a creative mixed media workshop with the members of Studley Green Art Group last Thursday. The Studley Green Art Group has been running for a number of years now, firstly under the tuition of Sue Fawthrop who relocated to Dorset September 2010, and now by the members with visiting tutors three/four times a half term. The group (limited to 20) comprises a number of enthusiastic amateur artists – some who have regularly participate in Bucks Open Studios – and meet once a week – Thursday mornings from 09h30 – 12h30 during school term time – at the Studley Green community hall – opposite the Studley Green Garden Store (HP14 3UB) (Junction 5 of M40). Members paint mostly in acrylics and watercolours, and also mixed media ie collage. We had a fantastic lively and productive session creating various still life pieces experimenting with tonal, warm/cool colours and new ways of working without brushes. Here are some examples of the fun we had with more images coming in a later post.
