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. Please note that refunds will not be available. All welcome and suitable for all levels from beginners to improvers. 18 yrs plus. Enjoy a day using acrylic paints and 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 help you to free up 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
Part of the workshop is about sketching and observing the contours, light and colours around the harbour and staithe. Therefore the aim is to learn how to use a sketchbook, 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 media to your paints, how to create interesting textures using tissue paper and a palette knife and much more.  Then 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?
Refreshments are available throughout the day with tea, coffee, soft drinks, biscuits and cake. Once the booking has been confirmed students will be sent a list of materials that they need to bring.

Art Groups

I’m happy to visit and give a lively art demonstration to your art group, and give  1:1 tuition afterwards.  Just read this 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

I really enjoy teaching and offer one to one tuition at my studio, minimum time for this is two hours.
