2018 Annual Exhibition workshops

During our 2018 Annual Exhibition we have an exciting and varied range of events to suit all interests and abilities, including a limited number of workshops with a ticket price of just £5 (+ booking fee). The usual price of these events is £50+ so this is a great opportunity to experience New English Classes & Workshops on a shoestring. 

Spaces are strictly limited. These events tend to be very popular, and sell out quickly. So if you’re keen, we recommend that you book your space(s) as soon as possible.

  • Tuesday 19 June: Ruth Stage will lead a day’s watercolour painting focusing on the plants and foliage in the Park. Pattern, rhythm, light and colour will be under investigation. Book now.

  • Wednesday 20 June: Alex Fowler will set up an array of still life objects looking at colour relationships as equivalents to what we see. You will be taught how to adjust colour relationships until they sing, one against another and all in the service of the whole. Book now.

  • Thursday 21 June: Jason Bowyer will lead this workshop which will encourage you to explore wet and dry media together. The park offers a myriad of pictorial possibilities, and Jason's robust approach and wealth of teaching experience will excite your thinking, and develop your visual language. Book now.

  • Friday 22 June: Neil Pittaway will lead this workshop in which you will be shown how to interpret landscape subjects working directly from exhibits in the NEAC exhibition and with provided source material in the Learning Centre. You will develop a range of techniques and methods to improve your drawing outcomes. Book now.
