eCALA Painting Icon CreateDuring this week your Royal Academy trained artist and art teacher week will take you on an exploration of colour in a playful painting class, designed to build your confidence in developing a personal creative practice.

Using two very different types of water-based painting media, you will explore colour as a potent, creative tool for appreciation and expression. You will be introduced to the media of watercolour and guache and will be able to experience the very different expressive properties of each medium.

We will take inspiration from the surrounding landscape to explore earthy and synthetic colours, reflecting on our relationship with nature and technology through painting exercises. You will learn the fundamental principles and practices of colour mixing as well as practical application of volume, hue and chroma through simple and fun exercises in observation and composition.

During the course of the week, you will be encouraged to create several abstract and landscape paintings and studies inspired by vibrant colours of nature surrounding you during your stay. This learning programme will also aim to deepen your perception of colour in everyday life.

Take advantage of the whole colourful eCALA experience to enhance your time here  – massage, meditation, water sports, boat trips, ‘Ted’ type talks and relaxation therapies.

All materials provided.
