The Wisborough Art Workshop is an event, not simply an art class, with shared ideas and opportunities to experiment and improve with diverse techniques and materials. The Workshop days are aimed at all levels of expertise, from total beginners to experienced artists and support most two-dimensional art mediums.
The venue is Wisborough Green Village Hall RH14 0DU which is set beside St Peter ad Vincula Church, (A272 between Billingshurst and Petworth). When fine weather allows, there are plenty of sketching and painting opportunities around the green in our beautiful village.
These whole day events are held 10am until 4pm Fridays, on more or less a monthly basis. The cost for the whole day is £25.00.
Included in the price is a delicious lunch of meats, cheeses, salads, varieties of freshly baked home-made bread and a glass of wine or soft drinks. (coffee, tea and biscuits available all day)
At the Workshop there is plenty to keep you inspired and busy! A 'sitter' is usually present, for figure drawing and painting. Also a couple of still lifes are set up. You will also find a great quantity of A4 coloured reference photos if you are in need of inspiration. Art equipment and materials are available for you to borrow, if necessary.
During the day, Patsy will be able to give a short drawing or painting demonstration, or illustrated discussions are held on particular art tips or techniques. Also, an 'art and artist appreciation' section is sometimes on display; together with current art magazines, articles and news. Painting demonstrations on DVD are available for you to watch whenever you like.
There is a monthly art-based prize quiz for you to take away and tax your brains with and also a DVD library, from which you can borrow for the forthcoming month.
Each month, you will receive a newsletter, either on the day or posted/emailed to you, keeping you up to date with activities in the workshop and news of events and exhibitions.
Several times each year Patsy organises group visits to major exhibitions and galleries in London - always a good day out, rounded off by an enjoyable lunch.
