Sketchbook Skills with Emma Taylor

10 September 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Sussex Prairie Gardens Summer Workshops 2021 Tutor: Emma Taylor
Dates: Friday 10th September 2021 Times: 10am-2pm
Course outline: Sketchbook Skills
Working in a sketchbook is a great place to experiment and try new approaches to art without the pressure of creating a masterpiece. It can be daunting starting a sketchbook but I will show you how to get started and how to gain confidence to develop your own style. We will be exploring varied media and create pages of backgrounds in a sketchbook which will follow your own theme or point of interest.
We will use varied techniques and recycle old pieces of work and collage materials. We will explore basic mark-making to create elaborate doodles and observation drawings to build up your artistic skills.
Your sketchbook will become a fun and simple way of incorporating creative expression into everyday life and this workshop will inspire you to make time each day to be creative.
This workshop does not require any specific artistic skills other than an open mind! You will need to bring a small sketchbook or I can supply an A5 homemade concertina book. This workshop can be attended on either day as a one-off or both days to revisit and refine work produced to get you started on your journey of creativity.
Costs: £55 per workshop. All materials and papers will be included in the price. To secure a place please contact Emma Taylor by email or phone 07540191437
About Emma Taylor
She studied Fine Art in Cardiff at the University of Wales in the early ’90s with one foot in the painting studios but gravitating to the warmth of the printmaking studios. Her work embodies the two disciplines with collagraphs produced with paint, card and carborundum and cut into integrating intaglio and relief printmaking.
Emma has worked as an Art teacher for many years with a focus on GCSE and A-Level in a highly successful Art department in Sussex and held the position of Head of Art for five years before leaving to focus on her family and printmaking.
Her wealth of experience and expertise in education has inspired countless students and they, in turn, have opened her eyes to the joys of returning to her own creativity.
She has exhibited in several Open Houses and local galleries. She is currently teaching Photography and runs regular classes at her home in Denton as Lupin Cottage Workshops.
Refund Policy: You may request a full refund up to 7 days prior to the event start date.
