What is this?
CREATE YOUR OWN UNIQUE PIECE OF ART IN A REAL ARTIST’S STUDIO
If you think that getting involved in modern art means endless hours of roaming through the elitist halls of faceless art galleries then think again… I’m bringing the excitement and expression of the artist out from the canvas and into your hands. Now you don’t have to be a spectator anymore—now you can do this for real.
ONE DAY PAINTING EXPERIENCES WITH ME ARE AVAILABLE NOW
BUT I CAN’T PAINT?
YES YOU CAN! YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE ANY DOUBTS BECAUSE I WILL SHOW YOU HOW…
You CAN do this. You can actually create your own art with the colours and shapes that you really want—I’ll show you how. And unlike many other ‘experiences’ this one has something to show for it at the end—your own piece of art, delivered to any address on the planet about three weeks later (once it’s dry).
TREAT YOURSELF – YOU DESERVE THIS
Take yourself on an unforgettable journey—a once-in-a-lifetime experience by being a proper artist for a day.
Paint in a working artist’s studio using exotic paints and tools, learn new techniques about colour and application and feel what it’s like to really go for it.
ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY
The hardest thing of all with my painting days is deciding to do it in the first place. The type of painting you will be doing is all about expressing yourself, letting go and doing something unique to you.
Don’t panic—I’ll give you everything you need to produce something extraordinary. All you need is the desire to let it all go! We can paint in almost any medium and virtually any style.
The cost includes canvas, paint, wood and other materials, food and drink and onward delivery and transport. To be honest, painting is not about the end result – it’s about the process of getting there; that’s the real beauty of it.
IT’S EASY, PAINLESS AND VERY, VERY EXCITING:
Before the big day we’ll talk about colours, sizes and shapes and cover other small details. Very painless I assure you.
I will ask you about colours in depth so I can get them in for you before you arrive. When the big day arrives we pretty much get stuck in straight away.
You cut the canvas, choose and mix your own paints and tools then it’s paint time. We’ll cut a practice piece before lunch just so you can get the feel for what everything does. We then tackle your own after a visit to the pub!
When your canvas dries I will hand-build a frame and then stretch and staple it together. Delivery to your home (normally about three weeks later) is included in the cost.
HOW THE DAY IS PLANNED
- Arrive at the studio in the morning
- Tour of the Gallery looking for inspiration
- Get suited and booted (into your old clothes of course)
- Cut your own canvas (up to 3m if you’re really adventurous) for the practice piece (no pressure!)
- Mix your own paints (with help from me of course)
- Get painting (come on, start throwing it around!)
- Break for Lunch (pub) and contemplation (always necessary)
- Cut your canvas for your own piece of art
- More painting, throwing, spreading, dropping and mess (the messier the better)
- Stare at your painting for as long as you want and pat yourself on the back
- Time for photos and a long drawn out conversation on why you never discovered the joy of painting earlier in life
STILL NOT CONVINCED?
Don’t think about what it’s going to look like or have doubts on your own ability. We will be splash, drip and throw painting so form, perspective and realism go straight through the window. I don’t do rules I just paint. It is just you, me, a big sheet of canvas and all the paint you could ever possibly want. Oh and cake and coffee of course.
I have 6000 sq.ft studio on a busy industrial park in Stroud (Gloucestershire) – easily situated a short distance from the M5 motorway (J13). Here you can paint against the walls and on the floor. There’s room to chill out and contemplate and lots of convenient parking.
I have full public liability insurance and provide all Personal Protection Equipment where required. If you have any kind of respiratory condition, asthma, heart problems or take any prescription medication I cannot let you in I’m afraid.
If you have ever thought what it would be like to create something like this then you need to mail me today and make that dream become a reality.
