I am delighted to be returning to Bahrain in late September, I’m looking forward to running a series of workshops at Wild AboutArt, a wonderful new art space in Juffair.
For bookings, visit www.wildaboutartco.com.
Here’s what we’re doing:
Watercolour Collage on Canvas: collaboration, color and creativity .
part 1. Sunday, Sept. 29
part 2: Monday, Sept. 30. 10 AM to 3:30 PM
Brilliant color and a step into abstracting from nature, this process creates stunning results for artists of all levels. You will learn a new way of working, deepen your understanding of color, create a beautiful piece of artwork, meet some other artists, and it’s fun!
The two day workshop is 65BD, or you can do part 1 on its own for 35. All materials are included, but if you have your own watercolours and brushes, please bring them.
Inspired by life: experimental approaches to the human form
Tuesday, October 1, 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM (or half days 930 -12 and 1-3:30 pm) AM: We will use alternative and unusual techniques and materials to capture the gesture and form of our clothed model with expression and energy.
PM: Bring your favorite colored media, Watercolour pastel, conte or whatever you like and appropriate Paper. We will create full compositions complementing the life model using creative color ideas. This is a really loose and exciting way to approach the figure!
35BD for the full day, 20 PD for half day, includes the models fee, refreshments, and some materials.
Making faces: an introduction to portraiture
Saturday, October 5, 6 pm-9 pm
Faces are endlessly fascinating, and given a few basics and tricks of the trade, it’s quite simple to capture a likeness. We will discover the underlying anatomy that we all share as humans and then will explore the subtle nuances that make us so unique.
We will create a few quick portrait sketches. Please bring a good photograph of someone you would like to draw. It will be a people painting party, with all materials and refreshments provided. 20 BD.
The artist’s studio: beyond the obvious!
Part 1: Sunday, October 6
Part 2: Monday, October 7 10am -3.30pm
Find your voice through color and abstraction. Starting with your own subject matter we will “go beyond the obvious” view and develop your vision using interesting new materials and approaches. More advanced artists are invited to work independently with my help and guidance.
Part 2: One on One. Take your work to the next level. There will be no group instruction today. Seana will work with each artist individually to help them realize their own artistic pools. This is the most exciting workshop of the week with creative ideas and energy bouncing between all the artists. Artists can bring work in progress of start new work using their own materials.
Seana can’t wait to see what you will produce!
30 BD refreshments but no materials provided.
For the all day workshops, you can bring your own lunch or we will get some lovely food at a local restaurant and enjoy some arty chat between 12.30 and 1.30.
