Come spend a few hours exploring colour, form and texture with us on Saturday morning. You'll love it so much, you'll be back for more! Brushworks brings the artist experience to everyone through a guided painting session. It's the perfect activity to relax, socialize and flex your artistic muscles. The best part? You need NO EXPERIENCE. Rathish, a trained professional artist has the unique ability to spark the creativity in everyone with his step-by-step instructions. He can teach anyone to paint! He will patiently and clearly guide you from a blank canvas to the picture you see here. After an easy going session you get bragging rights to a painting that no one will believe you painted. We'll bring the paints, palette, brushes, canvas and all the necessary art supplies.
Tea'se me, tea'se me till I lose control
A teetering tower of teacups stacked one on another. There's been a tea party here. There's been a lot of chugging down of tea. Maybe someone read the leaves. One person gasped at the prediction, while another giggled. Then they discussed it endlessly, accompanied by anecdotes and stories and wild uncontrollable laughter. And always, always empathy.
Soft Pastel Painting
Painting with soft pastel is the closest thing to painting with pure pigment in all its vibrant, chalky glory. Colour glides onto the surface and can be blended and modified with your finger or a tool such as a colour shaper. Is pastel a drawing or painting medium? The answer is both! Theyre unique in their qualities and fall between the two. The high pigment concentration in the finest pastels rivals what youd find in the most vibrant oil or acrylic paints. Their versatility allows you to draw chalky lines and also apply flat areas of colour than can be blended and layered over one another.
