Up coming course with Creative Future, Sept – Dec 2016

Organising an Art Exhibition – Brighton

This is a practical, hands on course in which participants organise their group show using their ready-made art work.  Participants will create a budget for the exhibition, organise a preview and promote the show.  We’re very grateful to the Regency Townhouse for providing the space at no cost.

Your artwork needs to be ready to exhibit. Please bring some examples of your work (photos are fine) to the first session so the group can discuss and decide what will go on show.

The course is comprised of 4 x two hour sessions, but at least 4+ ad hoc additional hours outside of the monthly meetings would be expected.  Limited to 5-7 participants.

Booking is essential. Please book your place with Creative Future

ARTAHEAD is wishing for a creative, peaceful and inspiring 2016!

Starting the year with two Sunday afternoon painting workshops:


Release your creativity and bring some colour to the winter blues.

Relax, chill-out and lighten up your days during the painterly process in the intimate ambiance of the artist studio.

There are still places available for  Sunday 17th January and 24th January, 2pm – 4 pm, cost £20, Acrylic paint and a small canvas included.

(If you would like to work on more than one canvas you can make a purchase at my studio or bring your own)

The sessions are for adults only and no previous experience is necessary. We paint in a small group, exploring colour and texture of the painterly process.

RSVP via messages if you would like to book a place or have any further questions.

Painting as part of your Wellbeing

The Sunday afternoon painting workshops started last November out of the impulse to offer something unpretentious to unfold ones creativity in a safe, supportive and relaxing atmosphere.painting is wellbeing

There is no need to always paint on large formats to be expressive. Allocating the space to explore helps unwind and release the creative energy that’s already inside you: allowing you to liberate your imagination

Immersing yourself into the painterly process lets you forget about the daily worries and gives you a moment of inner peace and focus, which can be compared with a meditative experience. Most people feel refreshed and uplifted after the session.

The images below are examples of work created in the last month sessions.
