TWO NEW ORCHARD GARDEN PAINTING WORKSHOPS
SUNDAY 25 OCTOBER & WEDNESDAY 11 NOVEMBER
The Orchard Garden was first established in 1948 by Arthur & Grace Mitchell to grow produce for the family and their pastry shop business. Today still in the family the garden is maintained by Jenni & Mervyn for food, beauty and a pleasant way of life.
The workshop will commence with a demonstration by Jenni Mitchell followed by one to one tuition around the garden. The large garden has plenty of corners to set up an easel or drawing board in comfort.
The focus is to capture on paper or canvas the essence of the garden quickly using your chosen materials. You will be shown how to view the subject using your Artists’ Eye.
These workshops are suitable for all student levels including beginners & experienced artists who like to work with nature in a colourful garden setting.
* Bring your favourite painting materials: oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolour, pencil or pastels. Lunch and refreshments provided.
*basic art materials available for purchase at gallery.
