Paint like Van Gogh - An oil painting workshop with Sarah Wimperis
Saturday 1st December 2018
10am – 4pm Cost £60
Join our NEW oil painting workshop led by Sarah Wimperis, one of the painter-animators of ‘Loving Vincent’ the first, ever, animated film based on the life of Vincent Van Gogh. Six years of development, over 1,345 paintings and 65,000 frames re-imagined a period of Van Gogh’s life into film. Sarah is an expert in the style and techniques used by Van Gogh and will share her knowledge with you on this fun workshop.
The morning will begin with a brief introduction and demonstration painting, followed by a guided session using methods and techniques used in the making of ‘Loving Vincent’. We will stop for a brief lunch (bring your own packed lunch) and continue to build your painting in the afternoon. We will work from printed images supplied by Sarah. At the end of the day, there will be the chance to ask questions and glean advice for ongoing practice.
All abilities are welcome.
