Tutor - Emma Burleigh

Wednesday 20 July 2022, 10am-4pm 

This class will be mainly taking place outdoors. The group will meet at the RWA, but will be taking a short walk to local green spaces, and returning to work outside on the RWA balcony for part of the day.

Open up to the creativity of nature with this special workshop designed to tie in with the RWA's leading exhibition Earth: Digging Deep in British Art 1781 - 2022 (9 July – 11 September 2022).

In this workshop, take a journey into the natural world to collect an array of ‘tiny treasures’ for our investigation and inspiration. Our walk will be a key part of the creative process. We’ll go on to explore some simple ways to make natural paints and prints from earth and plant matter and we’ll complete the day by creating some delicate and lively watercolour, pen, and pencil studies. .

Please wear clothes and shoes suitable for the weather and walking outdoors, including bringing sun-cream, a water bottle and sunglasses if it's hot. All materials are provided although we recommend bringing your own watercolour brushes if you have them.
