Working Plein Air with Valerie

This one day workshop will allow you to inspire yourself from reality to abstraction or semi abstraction (depending on your taste). Within specific steps we will analyse a landscape (Como pleasure ground) and work on shape, line, contrast/light etc. From there we will make an initial composition that will help us getting started into our second step at the college for your final artwork. In that workshop we will work step by step to allow us to have a final composition. It is a complete workshop that will teach you a professional technic to create an abstract or semi abstract artwork.

About the Tutor:

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