Experimental Art for Beginners

We will travel the journey of understanding, experiencing and getting inspired through different types of work for you to feel your connection with your own style. This 8 weeks course will bring you the basics of colours, textures, tips and tricks to create your very own artworks. I will support you and guide you through different projects (still life painting, abstract, mixed media, music painting etc) Before any work begins, we will talk about sketching, drawing and discovering well known artists and their styles. You don’t need any experiences for this class as we will work in a supportive and inspiring environment. Experimental art is a wonderful way to feel free to do anything that inspires you and to try lots of differents styles and technics. There are endless possibilities for us to share toghether. Make a space on your walls at home for your very own masterpieces!

About the Tutor:

'I have studied visual art, I have approached art through textiles but also I have attended numerous masterclasses with famous local and European artists. Those diverse ways to approach art have taught me to think outside the square. Painting for me is a feeling that’s beautiful that I cannot help it to want to share it.' Valerie
