FOR THE LOVE OF TREES: DRAWING, COLLAGE AND PAINTING

Debbie Field, painter and painting teacher

This course, aimed at those who have a passion for the spirit and soul of trees, provides an opportunity to express and explore through outdoor drawing, collage and painting the uplifting feeling of reverence and delight evoked by the presence of trees. This expressive take on painting from nature requires some painting experience but is not only for advanced painters . Emphasis is on experimental, experiential, adventurous and, above all, heart-felt involvement in the process of making paintings. Joan Mitchell’s Trees (available online) is essential reading for this course.

A list of materials will be provided on registration.
