Enchantment of the Everyday
Our 2018 Art Courses for the months April, June, July, August, and September will focus on the enchantment of the everyday. Those things that we see everyday but often miss in our hectic daily lives. The simple things in life are often the most glorious, and as spring begins to approach the beauty of nature, its colours and shapes inspire our art here at Atelier 88.
Along with Painting and Drawing courses we will offer Printmaking in our purpose built studio with Linocut Workshops, Lithography ‘Plastic Plates’ and ‘Mokulito’ courses and Non Toxic Etching. See our work on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/atelierspain/
We had another visit from our guest printmaker Mick Wooton and we discovered hidden gems in the rocks and olive groves, prehistory settlement sites, caves and carvings in the rocks quite beautiful and worthy place for making some great paintings and drawings.
