Creative Inspirational: Watercolour and Mixed Media Painting
These enjoyable weeks offers you the opportunity to explore a variety of techniques and media in painting including watercolour, acrylics and pastels. All levels of ability are catered for with artist tuition, from simple painting and drawing techniques to more complex artistry. The safe and encouraging environment will help you grow in your confidence and skills.
Aimed at those with little or no experience but a desire to learn how to draw and paint effectively. There will be step by step tuition, time to play and explore with textures and different painting styles as well as projects that are simple yet effective. Please note that intermediate painters are welcome too as there will be something on offer for everyone.
John Tetley is a talented and qualified artist, who will lead, guide and challenge you with gentleness and humour. There will be group led times where we will experiment with mixed media or engage in step by step tuition in how to produce a painting to delight in.
Be inspired, have fun, draw near to God and discover your God-given talents on this special holiday week.
All materials are provided, but feel free to bring your own as well.
Vision for the Creative Inspirational Weeks
Our living Creator God has put within each of us desires and gifts designed to restore and refresh our human spirits - an antidote to the stress and toil of our fallen world. These times of creative enjoyment for the human heart have been designed with this purpose in mind. To give ourselves time to enjoy the life and gifts God has given us and to enjoy them with Him.
What better place than the Highlands of Scotland to receive the Creator's inspiration? Blairmore provides a comfortable and beautiful setting for discovering your talents. In addition to the main sessions, there will be morning and evening inspiration, worship and fellowship times.
