LEWIS NOBLE WORKSHOP 11-13 September: Sketching and Painting the Derbyshire Landscape:
This inspirational workshop includes drawing and sketching out in the Derbyshire landscape, followed by studio work back at the gallery. Suitable for all abilities and designed to provide a solid working practice that will help you to develop as an artist. £225 for 3 days include lunch and refreshments.

LOUISE JANNETTA WORKSHOP 27 September: Woods in Autumn:
Investigate the use of colour. The workshop will cover the unique watercolour and ink methods that Louise has developed but alongside this participants will be taught to consider the use of colour: Colour can impart mood, it can intensify contrast and can be utilised to create composition. It is fascinating how colour use and juxtaposition can make a composition sing. £75 include lunch and refreshments.

See our workshop webpage for more information on these workshops.
