Description

Re-capture a sense of play, curiosity and awe using a wide range of art materials. Dabble, scribble, smear, smudge, drip, rip, and tear your way through the day. Experiment with shape, colour, and form under Margaret’s guidance. The day is less about what you create, though you’ll make several small pieces of art during the session. The emphasis is on enjoying the creative process and taming what Margaret calls “the grumpy monkey” who mutters in your ear. She’ll lead a range of exercises that help you loosen up, let go and ask “what if” and “how can I” as you make your art. She will also help you troubleshoot where necessary throughout the day. Materials supplied including a small canvas panel. If you have a favourite tool or material do bring it along to use.

Creative Director of Art Grooves, Margaret Taylor graduated from The Learning Connexion (Diploma in Art & Creativity) 12 years ago. Then she ran a popular art education programme for KAC for over 8 years. She mentored other artists to expand that programme. Her abstract art in mixed media celebrates colour and shape.
