Weekend Painting and Drawing Workshop

with Bristol artist and writer Nick Moore

I have been forty years discovering that the queen of all colours is black.’

In this two day workshop we explore the richness and versatility of this potent colour.

Engaging in a variety of mark making techniques and materials, there will be structured exercises and time for individual development of work. Practical explorations will be interspersed with discussion of the cultural and historical context of black, looking at examples from visual art, the written word, science and belief systems; as Matisse said, ‘Black is a force’.

Art materials and refreshments will be provided, please bring lunch and wear suitable clothes.

Nick Moore is an abstract painter, writer, curator and improvising musician based in Bristol. 

Booking is required.
