Overview

A materials list for this course will be made available via the Institute.

Taking inspiration from three prominent artists these stand-alone workshops will introduce you to painting interiors. The first session will focus to Mary Fedden”s composition, and introduce students to using strong colours and patterns. During the second session, we will look at how Edward Hopper created atmosphere in nighttime scenes, including how to use strong colours and contrast to capture the fading light. The final session will take inspiration from Van Gogh, focusing on creating a sense of space, using very few colours. Sign up for one, two or all of these workshops. Painting in Acrylic for all abilities.

About the Speaker

Claire Harrison

Claire is a full-time international fine artist, and due to artistic commitments, only teaches courses at the Guildford Institute which is probably why they frequently oversubscribed.  Claire also has a few private students supporting them through their academic courses and mentors fellow artists.  Claire enjoys sharing her passion and extensive technical knowledge of drawing, painting and work of the Masters.  Claire has a unique teaching style where she concentrates on each individual developing their own style with confidence.

Claire is inspired by the natural world; from the flowers she grows to the tiny insects in her garden.  Claire creates large colourful oil paintings that are painstakingly created with a small detailed brush.  She can spend anything up to 2 years on a painting because she studies her subjects from life through drawing and photography in her sketchbook before finally embarking on the final painting using her research and imagination.  Claire’s much sought-after artworks are in both public and private collections in the UK, Canada and China.

Claire works and lives in the heart of the West Sussex countryside with her husband and neurotic rescue cat and has an interest in the environment, horticulture, literature, walking, dancing, yoga, meditation and archery.
