My next art workshop planned is set in the beautiful natural setting of High Elms – home to a host of British wildlife and countryside birds and plants and past home to John Lubbock, naturalist and friend to neighbour Charles Darwin.
This one-off Christmas art workshop offers participants the chance to create a beautiful mixed media plaque featuring Britain’s National Bird and well-known symbol of Christmas – the robin, which you can take home and use as a festive wildlife-themed stocking hanger or decorative wall art.
If the weather is good, we might find time to step outside into the wildlife garden to spot a resident robin in its natural habitat.
The workshop will include some demos, tips and the chance to try out mixed media art effects - drawing on my experience as a local wildlife and nature artist.
All materials will be provided. Refreshments will also be offered but please bring lunch (or visit the on-site, award-winning cafe, following the workshop).
This session is suitable for adults. No experience necessary.
Further WILDLIFE and NATURE art workshops at High Elms Country Park BEECHE are planned for the New Year and at other planned workshops and art classes.
|Art Workshop Christmas Robin|
This Victorian Christmas card-style of robin singing amongst the ivy could have been painted but the textures add a depth and interest that are noticeable. The process of creating it is a personal creative journey that is different for every artist.
