Teaching in the Tarn... ‘Translation of sketch to painting’
Maggie Brown completed a BA (Hons) Textile Design and teaching certificate from Winchester School of Art in 1980. Since then, she has gained a wide experience of decorative and applied arts. This experience includes commissioned paintings, portraiture, card designs, and teaching paint techniques and drawing. A move to Wales inspired her to develop her own paintings, combining her love of nature and the landscape with the exploration of texture, light and colour. She currently exhibits in England and Wales.
Maggie will provide much energy and enthusiasm on this seven day course, exploring the ‘translation of sketch to painting’ with the use of mixed media and acrylics, suitable for beginners and intermediates who wish to take their work further.

Initially to start the course, a strong bias to using sketch books, how to collect the right information and how to use the sketch book as a necessary tool, in conjunction with painting, touching on areas of drawing skills, perspective, tone, composition and texture.
This confidence building course will enable the student to be more spontaneous and expressive, once these building blocks are in place, and the use of texture in the paint, mark making with a variety of tools, together with one to one tuition, will enable a student to have fun, and develop their own path of personal style and individuality.
