A Taste of Art: Scandinavian Gouache Painting (6th March)

Rural Arts Thirsk
Wednesday 6th March

Design your own graphic illustrations or patterns using this traditional painting medium. Using strong flat colours you will be able to create a simple illustration and learn brush techniques such as overlaying white and grey paint to enhance your design. If you are stuck for a design, don't worry, we can provide a selection of ideas to choose from, alternatively, bring your own sketchbook ideas, but keep it simple!

All materials and equipment are provided. This workshop is suitable for all abilities.

Please note: we do not issue physical tickets. Please use your email order confirmation as proof of purchase.

Wednesday 6th March (10.30am-12.30pm) The Courthouse, Thirsk Tickets Available: 5
Ticket(s) 15.00

'Taste of Art' workshops are creative sessions that are friendly, informal and good fun and aim to provide an introduction to a technique or art form. Lasting an hour and a half they are run by qualified tutors and artists and aim to give you an insight into a craft and inspire you to do more.

You don't have to be a creative person to take part as the sessions are aimed at all levels and the focus is on experimentation. Most of our sessions use materials and equipment that are accessible and low cost and we always try to provide ceramic activities that utilise our kiln.

'Taste Of Art' sessions will provide you with an opportunity to make new friends and meet up with other budding creatives.

'Taste of Art' sessions run during the school term and a detailed programme is released on this website.

Please bring an apron.
