Summer Workshop with Michael Kirkbride NEAC

September 18, 2017 - jo-admin - Uncategorized

The summer is always a hard time of year to paint for me as the children are off school. But this year, with the prospect of the Masters at Chelsea getting closer I was determined not to put down the brushes for 6 weeks.

I enrolled in a weeks workshop with Michael Kirkbride at Insight School of Art. I went with no expectations and Michael even had some reservations that I was too advanced for the workshop. However, always ready to improve and evolve, I went and I learnt!

It was a privilege to be taught insights by such an established teacher (Royal Academy, New English Drawing School and London College of Fashion) We did everything from life drawing, blind drawing (drawing with your eyes closed using touch as a guide), sketchbook work and collage.
