Saturday 18th January 2020
10am – 4pm
Create an engaging, exciting sketchbook that feeds your creativity!
Do you have ideas that you can’t seem to translate? Does your proudly purchased sketchbook leave you feeling flat? Mel can show you how to create a sketchbook that will feed your desire to work within its pages and fuel your imagination. It could even leave you feeling inspired and confident enough to produce that piece of artwork that up until now seemed to remain in your head. Learn how to craft your sketchbook into a beautiful working document which will leave you with plans and ideas for the future. This course is all about building confidence and exploring ideas.
A Fine Art painting degree from Cheltenham in the mid 90’s allowed Mel to find her artistic voice. Following this, she spent twenty years teaching secondary school pupils and just three years ago decided to become a full time professional artist. Her first solo show at Chapel Arts in Cheltenham launched her new career. She exhibited at ‘The Other Art Fair’ a Saatchi affiliated show in Bristol last Summer. She is full of energy and enthusiasm for her new audience of students and is sharing her creative process.
