This inspirational workshop will help you to explore new ways of interpreting still life drawings through the dynamic use of contemporary colour and shapes.
The session aims to offer a new way of interpreting and re-energising the traditional medium of still life. By creating colourful, sassy and dynamic still lives (no dead fruit or skulls here) Alice creates beautiful shapes, colours and subject matter to help you gain confidence in drawing and enjoy the process of mark making.
The class is appropriate for all skill sets, whether you’re a master mark maker or a complete beginner.
