Julia leads this short art break with watercolour demonstrations, composition and colour exercises as well as one-to-one tuition time, both outdoors and in the Art Safari Studio.
Your sketchbooks will fill with happy images of woodlands, hedgerows and gardens blooming beneath clear blue skies (with maybe the odd shower). At this time of year we are surrounded by a feast of colours – fields of bright poppies, fragrant honeysuckle climbing walls, and herbaceous borders filled with soft peonies and roses.
Glorious Gardens & River Estuaries takes you out into the Suffolk countryside as well as the market town of Woodbridge, sketching and painting en plein air. We venture to parts of Suffolk that have enchanted artists, poets and authors over the centuries. As a backdrop are the River Deben, beautiful country churches, spectacular English gardens, and the aerial acrobatics of swallow and swifts and early butterflies…
As one of the ‘big sky’ counties, we can expect huge skies with magnificent cloudscapes to paint (and we will have some wet weather options at our locations just in case!)
The Art Safari Studio has fabulous views of the Deben estuary from the elevated deck. The iconic Tide Mill is a few steps away and the mysterious Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo is just across the river.
Enjoy the company of your fellow artists with fulfilling days of artistic exploration and convivial evenings.
A minimum of 4 and up to 12 participants, depending on current government guidelines on social distancing.
£475 including VAT, 3.5 days tuition, picnic lunches, refreshments at the Studio, and entrance to Helmingham Hall.
