Magic Mushrooms! Get high on art! Limiting colour can have magical effects as we isolate an element to explore the details of a landscape. This week it's mushrooms... with an optional magical element! This session works well with each of the workshops this term but also stands alone.

'I cannot tell you how much I loved doing these sunny little faces... I could literally see their individual little faces in the swirls and shades of colour. All I had to do was fill them in! It was like magic and a bit like seeing shapes in the clouds.  Apparently I was all aglow during the class with my own face beaming with delight at your lovely project (although that may have been the gin!). Brilliant!'

'Just wanted to say thank you so much for another lovely session...I had a lovely time messing about with colours and listening to your stories!'

'I have grown in confidence with my art and learn to accept and enjoy the process where previously I would get frustrated and annoyed. Lucia is a generous, patient and very funny teacher who has encouraged and tutored me for 2 years now. I never fail to enjoy my lessons with her. I wish that my school art classes had been like this!'
