Wednesday 14th 7-9pm – Zentangle Art
Using a pencil, pen, ruler and paper which is 3.5″ square (9cm x 9cm), form a series of repetitive patterns to create original abstract images. Use lines, dots, circles, curls, swirls and squiggles and watch as organic shapes morph into something new.
If you’d rather work in a bigger size and use more colours then that’s absolutely fine, bring more than the basics to draw with. Relax and concentrate your mind.
Try and incorporate the colour Viva Magenta into your picture too.

Saturday 24th June 10am-3pm – Fabulous Flowers
Flowers are always a popular subject to paint, so let’s have a whole session to get creative with fabulous, fecund florals and brilliant, beautiful blooms.
Wild flowers or garden, tropical or potted, a whole garden or a botanical painting of just one flower, it’s your choice. Use any medium but why not go as bright as you can? Use colourful inks, Inktense pencils and blocks, or pure, intense watercolours. Work large, fast and loose to create images with impact, like Georgia O’Keefe. Or paint more traditional flower paintings like Edouard Manet or Claude Monet.
This promises to be a very colourful, creative session!
