June 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An opportunity to join our award winning artist in residence, Antonia Black, for a very special day long plein air workshop for all abilities at this beautiful and iconic site of Broadway Tower.
Abandon your preconceptions and inhibitions as Antonia leads you in a hugely inspiring and enjoyable foray into expressionism and colour in this stunning landscape in your choice of medium.
Paint big and bright and prepare to amaze yourself!
Access to the tower included in the workshop fee to allow participants to paint from the top of it too!
A prolific, professional Australian artist who settled locally in The Cotswolds, she originally studied at the National Art School in Sydney, and then spent 5 years at the Slade in London.
She has exhibited widely in England and abroad and gained many prestigious awards for her vibrant and lively work including the Sydney and the RBSA Open Watercolour competitions, the Singer & Friedlander/Sunday Times Watercolour Competitions of 2001, 2003 and 2006 and the ‘Grand Prix’ at the 14th Salon International de la Peinture a L’Eau in Tregastel, France in 2003.
Antonia’s paintings radiate her own ‘joie de vivre’. Lively and spontaneous she paints with passion, both still life and outdoors, often on big sheets of heavy watercolour paper laid directly on the ground.
Always colourful and exuberant they reflect the artist’s own irrepressible personality.
Antonia is a colourist combining brilliant non-naturalistic colour with vigorous expressive brushwork. She has years of experience teaching drawing and watercolour in secondary schools and in adult education as a professional art tutor. She enthuses students of all ages and abilities with her love of watercolour medium combined with pastel, gouache and ink. She strongly believes in encouraging creativity, spontaneity and enjoyment of the arts.
There are wet weather facilities, parking and an excellent cafe on site for lunch and coffees.
