The Allotment in Acrylics, Paper & Pastels!

Create a large scale allotment painting using mixed media, acrylic, papers and pastel.  A fabulously creative day observing a range of light, riot of colour and the joy of plants, sheds, greenhouses and flowers in the allotment.  A great course for getting out of your comfort zone and having a go at painting a large painting with blocks of bold colour.  Suitable for all abilities.
10 am - 3.45 pm  Refreshments provided with everyone bringing a packed lunch.
