Whether you have a desire to create but don't know exactly how or which media best suits you, or if you would like to improve what you already do or need to put together a portfolio, a creative workshop
is your answer.
This class is designed to teach the basics of several techniques - focus is placed on the individual student so programmes are adapted to suit your individual needs.
This programme is suitable for beginners, improvers as well as experienced artists who want to learn something new.
Day 1: Guests will be collected at Pescara airport or at Pescara railway station early in the afternoon and taken to their accommodation in Castiglione a Casauria. After settling in, your tutor will lead a brief introduction on the course. A welcome dinner with your fellow guests will end the day..
- Day 2 and 3: working with clay: Working in clay is among the most sensory media of all the arts. Creating an object and giving life to a beautiful form out of raw materials is a truly gratifying and unique experience. We will cover several aspects of hand building (no potter's wheel) to make a variety of objects or small sculptures.
Afternoon visit to the Abbey of San Clemente.
- Day 4: the art of the print: discover creative printmaking techniques with fun and challenging workshops which cover monoprinting and monotyping using oil based inks (morning session) and waterbased inks (afternoon session).
- Day 5: by this day your clay works will be dry and ready to be finished and or retouched. We will spend a couple of hours finishing the product which will be fired in the evening.
In the afternoon we will discover other aspects of printmaking: linocut and embossing.
- Day 6 and 7: painting and drawing: you will learn basic techniques in oil painting or acrylics and finish one small painting. We will also spend time painting outdoors while on an excursion to visit a medieval village
