with Seabastion Toast
Join Seabastion for a full day of learning, creating and connecting with like minded people.
You will learn to think about composition, sketching and how to create expressive gestural marks to capture the essence of your subject.
Participants will be guided through the art making process and you will take home your very own bee painting.
This workshop is great for beginners as we all work step by step through painting the same image.
Advanced students are given an opportunity to work on their own images maintaining a loose expressive style.
