Norwich Art Class/Workshops
On Monday October 19th 2015, two open air art/painting workshops will be held in Norwich, Norfolk.

Local and visiting amateur, aspiring and experienced artists, as well as members of the competition, are all welcome to take part. The two workshops will take place 10am-4pm and include lunch in the £50 package price. You will need to bring your own art materials. The workshops on offer are:
- Bold and Expressive: Mixed Media From Life with Denis Clarke
- An Introduction to Oil Painting En Plein Air with Michael Richardson
Both Michael Richardson and Denis Clarke are well known professional en plein air painters, who will guide beginner and intermediate artists through the steps needed to create a successful open air painting.
Bold and Expressive: Mixed Media From Life
An introduction to some diversions from habitual ways we look and draw from a subject. Methods might be challenging to get your thinking more attuned to a practice of learning to see form and space using drawing media as well as paint. Expressive use of mark and gesture will be encouraged. (More details to follow)
Denis Clarke is a well established artist who exhibits and teaches in Australia and the UK. He studied at the National Art School Sydney, St Martins School of Art, London and Byam Shaw School of Art, London. He also taught in Switzerland and was awarded a studio scholarship at at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. He has been both the recipient of major awards as well as judged several prestigious art prizes.
Denis is renowned for devising and delivering innovative master class courses linking observational drawing to creative and experimental methods with drawing and mixed media. This is a rare opportunity to learn from an international artist and art teacher.
An Introduction to Oil Painting En Plein Air Workshop
This introductory oil painting workshop will be delivered by Michael Richardson, a member of the Plein Air Painting Society, The Wapping Group of Artists, and who shows in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. He paints outside almost every day in the Impressionist style for collectors worldwide. This workshop was very well attended when delivered at Paint Out Wells so book early to avoid disappointment.
