ArtWaves festival is back, albeit digitally for 2021!
The team has curated an online programme full of workshops, demonstrations, clips and activities for you to get creative virtually.
Alongside this you can still explore the Visual Art Trail and Environmental Monster Trail in person following our trail maps: free to download or to buy as part of our get creative at home pack.
Don't forget we're also hosting an 'ArtWaves Spin Off' in the summer, installations, live art, walkabout puppets and a gallery tour. For now you can save the date with more details expected shortly.
Join returning award winning artist Catherine Inglis in a full day workshop exploring coastal sunsets.
Attendees will receive a short demonstration from the artist before the practical session illustrating how light falls and reflects on the sea. Pastels can be worked to create amazing results and students will learn how to master the techniques for these critical areas in seascapes.
Tips and tricks will be given throughout to understand the types of pastels to use, importance of using tonal values, colour selection and various pastel techniques to help you produce a fantastic masterpiece in one day.
What you need to bring with you:
Cath will have sheets of Canson pastel paper as well as the Sanded paper and unison pastels she uses for you to buy if required, at a very reasonable price.
Due to the implications of Covid-19 this workshop will be staged online. Participants will receive clear information on how to access this workshop in advance.
We will email you the latest competition news, keep you up-to-date on the festival, let you know when competitions open and publicise prize-winners.
