Imagine sketching lost-in-the jungle temples and gliding along waterways passed floating villages as you watch the play of light on water...

This virtual Art Safari delves into the culture, natural beauty, historical and dance influences of Cambodia.  From our homes, we explore the architectural wonders of Angkor Wat and journey through beautiful rural landscapes. Along the way, we encounter plenty of painting inspiration – dense jungles, huge lakes and mighty rivers, and we meet the characters carved in stone on temple friezes whose counterparts perform in the theatres, circuses and dance schools of modern Cambodia.

Join Mary-Anne for 3 days of painting via zoom with live sessions including demos on painting the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, as well as the talented dancers and acrobats whose performances describe Cambodian culture and beliefs.

Mary-Anne includes a talk on traditional Khmer culture illustrated with artwork and photographs.

Visiting Cambodia virtually can give you insight into the creative lives of artists and dancers.  Mary-Anne’s lively demonstrations will show you how to paint acrobats and dancers in motion, as well as giving you structure and technique to tackle the human form on the magnificent carvings of some of the Angkor temples.  Mary-Anne will also give tutorials to cover the vibrant colour and perspective of South East Asian landscapes, to include rivers, palm trees, paddy fields and jungles of this magical part of the world.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

All sessions start at 2pm GMT

Day 1: Meet Mary-Anne on Zoom for three hours of art demonstration and tuition time.

Mary-Anne will give a talk and show examples of her own sketches from her Art Safari tours in Cambodia.

You will have the option to paint from a variety of images to suit your taste from a library of photos you will receive as part of the course package.

You have time in between sessions to complete your work and submit images of your paintings for feedback on our private Facebook group or by email.

Day 2: We meet again the following afternoon to tackle a second subject through the same process. Tuition will comprise of a second talk, followed by art demos.

Days 3 and 4: The weekend is free for you to paint at home.

Day 5: We hold a final meeting to review and share your work and insights from the course.

It’s going to be a fun and highly informative voyage!
