PAINTING RETREAT: ART AND SPIRITUALITY 1 – MAKING CONNECTIONS

Friday March 19, 2021 at 18:30 to Sunday March 21, 2021 at 13:30

*NEW* Acrylics or Watercolour.
Why do painters paint? And why do others value their work enough to buy or display it!?
Is painting just merchandise or something we are proud of and want to display? Is our task as painters to report, celebrate or critique the world we live in?
By painting and with illustrated talks, the course will look at what we choose to paint, and why, and will explore our connections to art history and other creative forms of art such as music and poetry. We will discuss together the range of responses we each have to the world around us, and to the societyof which we are part.
There will be plenty of practical exercises and projects to stimulate our thinking alongside our painting.
