Today I invite you to take a look with me at some of the beautiful work of the artist Laura Reiter who will be giving a two day workshop at my studio on May 12th & 13th 2018.
Laura studied art at Kingston and Wimbledon Schools of art obtaining a BA in painting and an MA in printmaking. Her images show a great sensitivity towards colour and composition. They lean towards abstraction but with an interesting element of figuration. Her travels weave themselves into the images as well as her day to day life playing a part.
The first three of the following images are in mixed media and the remaining two are screenprints.
During The workshop taking place at my studio on May 12th and 13th Laura will lead a time of exploring mark making and materials and investigating ways in which exciting and personally expressive paintings can be achieved. There will be opportunity to look at other artists work, both past and present for inspiration and discussion of how abstract art means different things to different people.
The course is suitable for beginners and also for those painters who perhaps paint in a more realistic style but would like to develop their work towards more expressive and abstract styles using mixed media of all kinds.
Above all, these 2 days are designed to be a fun and enjoyable experience after which students return home with ideas and skills with which to continue their artistic journeys.
Cost for the 2 days is £140. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided throughout the day and an optional 2 course lunch with home cooked and organic food for £8.50 per day.
