Sue is one of our most popular artists at the Old School Studio, so I’m thrilled to be able to invite her back for a 5th year! Her use of acrylic inks produces the most stunning effects in a matter of minutes, and I’m sure if you sign up for this workshop you will not be disappointed! Sue enjoys painting colour, light and texture, and will be sharing her ideas, methods and enthusiasm with you! Click here to see samples of Sue’s artwork.

This workshop is slightly different from Sue’s usual take on acrylic inks, as she’ll be introducing a variety of other mediums into the mix, including watercolour, texture mediums and much more. Each day will consist of a number of short demonstrations, plus plenty of personal tuition, and conclude with an opportunity to review your progress, whilst sharing your thoughts with both the other students and Sue.

You can book both days for £125.00 or book just one day with Sue for £65.00

* Special Tip* To get the most from this workshop it’s recommended that you sign up for both days, as Sue will not be able to cover everything in just one day.

Who should attend?
This workshop is ideal for both the beginner and the more experienced artist. If you are interested in experimenting with new mediums and bold colours and would like to work towards a more abstracted style of painting, then this workshop is for you!
