Abstract Painting Workshop - June 15th.


Saturday June 15th, 2 - 4.30pm.

Come and join the first instalment of artist led workshops in Laurie’s sunny East London studio beginning with Abstract Painting.

This is a great introduction to working with paint and is the perfect way to gain an understanding of the material and make something you’ll be really proud of. Each class is limited to just 6 students meaning valuable one-on-one time with Laurie throughout the 2.5/3 hour long workshop.

What does the workshop include?

  • Laurie will begin with a short introduction into her practice; talking through her approach to painting, organising of shapes and use of colour.

  • Working from a still life, you will be taught how to draw and curate what can be seen in front of you from an abstract perspective using either shapes provided by Laurie or your own sketches (dependant on confidence in drawing).

  • A short lesson on mixing acrylic paints and marrying colours, but again, there will be a pre-mixed palette of Laurie’s signature subtle tones available for students to use.

  • All materials necessary for the day’s workshop will be provided for including a medium size canvas and provision of a guide book specific to the days learning’s which will be yours to take home.

  • Home baked goods and loose leaf teas will be provided during a short break where we can reflect on where we are with the work so far.

This workshop is for beginners to intermediate level, more advanced classes will be added later in the year. Please be sure to bring along clothing that you don’t mind getting ruined as paint can be tricky to wash out.

Tickets are non refundable so triple check your calendar before booking. If for some reason you cannot attend and are passing the ticket on to a pal then please let me know.

Unfortunately the studio is top floor without a lift so wheelchair access is not available. Sincerest apologies if this causes any disappointment.
