Boutique Visual Art Workshops – Intuitive Mixed Media Mark Making

Designed to offer an opportunity for participants to intuitively express their ‘inner voice’ onto the page to create a uniquely individual abstract artwork that is playfully composed using high quality art materials that include:- superior pigmented inks, artist quality acrylic paints, charcoal, soft pastels, oil pastels, posca pens which are applied using pipets, textured rollers and brushes of all sizes.
