Painting Flowers at Newark

Painting Flowers at Newark


Sat 16th July 10am – 4:30pm, Newark Park, Ozleworth, £70. This workshop is a day dedicated to the beautiful art of painting flowers within the historic building and grounds at Newark Park. We will cover the basics of botanical illustration, watercolours and observational drawing in a room full of blooms. After lunch, you will put your newly learned skills to use and create a watercolour “standing” card or artist’s book of your choosing, inspired by a walk around the gardens. At the end of the day you will have your own piece of artwork to take home and know all you need to get started in the world of watercolour. Lunch is not provided but tea, cake, and coffee will be on hand all day. You're welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy on one of the benches (whilst watching the peacocks!) and there's also a small cafe on site. All materials (and flowers) provided, however if your garden is overflowing with blooms that you would like to paint, or you have art supplies you’d like to test, feel free to bring them along. Suitable for all levels of ability. Please get in touch if you'd like more information about the accessibility of this class.
