COMING UP AT CAG

22nd May

Demonstration - Café/street scene in pastels by Joel Wareing

Joel’s practice is focussed on body language and the interaction of people within urban environments. Paintings are made from sketches and photographs taken on location and created out of a desire to translate an atmosphere within the painted image. Paint is used as a way to get closer to an actual experience of a place, a vehicle for transferring emotions that a photograph might not give you.

 

We are delighted that Joel will be demonstrating his skills for us in our May demo.

SATURDAY WORKSHOP - embellished paintings with textiles - Vicky O'Leary

This is a fun and relaxed experimental workshop exploring how to create landscapes and semi abstract landscapes by focusing on the texture before applying any colour.

 Vicky O’Leary will show you how to represent foliage and landscapes by using different textures and using a wide variety of materials including paint. Working on fabric you will learn how to colour and highlight the textures, then finish off with a variety of stitches to enhance the piece.

Places on the workshop are limited and bookings are taken on a first come, first served basis.
