Creative Wellbeing at GHT is a programme of art-based short courses designed to promote, reflect upon and build positive wellbeing and resilience whilst fostering a supportive, creative community.
In this series of workshops you will learn how to create wonderful woodland inspired illustrations with watercolour and gouache paints with Amy’s guidance and demonstration.
Materials are provided and these classes welcome beginners and experienced painters alike.
Session 1: Learn how to use washes of watercolour to blend colour, create layers and build depth as we illustrate autumnal leaves, pinecones and chrysanthemums.
Session 2: This session is all about discovering ways to use different colours to represent black and white areas. We’ll explore layering vibrant watercolours with crisp black and white gouache on top to create interesting depth and effects.
Session 3: Forget washes; this session is about bold, vivid colour! Explore the world of gouache as we spend time colour mixing, applying bold backgrounds and flat, smooth colour blocks to build a vibrant toadstool.
Session 4: It’s time for texture! Discover ways you can use various brush strokes to create smooth fur and bushy tails as we illustrate squirrels and foxes.
You’re welcome to book onto all sessions or attend an individual class.
The fee for each class is £18 and you can enjoy a discount when booking multiple classes. Artist materials will be provided however you are welcome to bring your own.
Courses can be booked individually as taster sessions in advance here or on the day.
