All workshops will be held at Burnham Overy Staithe Village Hall, New Road, PE31 8JQ, on the North Norfolk coast, unless otherwise stated. Time: 10am till 4.30pm. £60 per person. I usually take up to 10/11 students for each workshop. The weekend workshop shall be £115 per person with a maximum of 8 students. I regret that I am unable to give refunds. All welcome and suitable for all levels. 18 yrs plus. Enjoy a day of creative play using mixed media inspired by the beautiful North Norfolk coast. With an emphasis on painting techniques, demonstrations and one-to-one tuition, this one day workshop will give you the freedom to express your creativity through mark making, mixed media, colour mixing and fun! 

As a trained art tutor, I have taught in high schools and adult education for several years. I now enjoy teaching mixed media classes based on my techniques to help and encourage others to develop their own artistic journey. 

               About the day

The first part of this workshop is all about sketching and observing the contours, light and colours around the harbour and staithe. The aim is to learn how to use a sketchbook for capturing expressive marks, to free up your thinking and mark making as you engage with the atmosphere of the place, before returning to the hall for lunch.

After lunch, I will give a group demonstration on how I enjoy taking a sketch into a painting, using many of my own techniques, such as adding various different mediums to your paints, how to create valuable textures using tissue paper and a palette knife and much more. After the demonstration, everyone will have the opportunity to create their own painting inspired by their sketches with lots of support and one-to-one tuition along the way.

What is included

Each workshop includes some basic materials for students to use. Refreshments are available throughout the day with tea, coffee, soft drinks, biscuits and cake. All students will be sent a materials list once the booking has been confirmed.

A review from a recent art group. “If you haven’t yet had a visit from Tracey Ross to your art club you are missing a treat! Her demonstration of mixed media techniques was so inspiring and her enthusiasm and joy of painting infectious. Our group had a really wonderful day and thanks to Tracey.  We went home with not only a painting, but a feeling that we had gained so much from the experience – excitement, confidence and pleasure. The perfect art therapy. Thank you Tracey.”  Angie P
