Berwick Educational Association Workshops: Women Painting Women: an acrylic painting workshop

Berwick Educational Association are hosting a series of six practical art workshops inspired by the works of women artists in Berwick Visual Arts Spirited exhibition on display at the Granary Gallery, giving amateur and professional artists the opportunity to try out some of the techniques used by artists in the Spirited exhibition. 

Workshop 1 - Women Painting Women: an acrylic painting workshop
Throughout art history the muse is traditionally female and the artist predominantly male. When the artist is female, what difference does this make? Looking closely at the work within the exhibition we will explore different approaches to creating figurative painting using acrylic paints on canvas or board. There will be a draped model.

Please bring your own paints, brushes and supports
