Orla runs expressive painting and drawing workshops for groups and public events, as well as one to one classes from her studio in Callander.
Classes range from 1 hour exploring Landscape: loosening up approaches to drawing and painting, to full day or two day courses delving into composition, colour, mark making and process. Classes are suitable for people new to painting, and for those returning to the easel, looking to free up their approach.
A wide range of Screen Printing workshops are available through Print Clan - Glasgow's open access textile printing studio.
If you would like to host or attend a workshop, please do get in touch!
18 AUGUST - 8 SEPTEMBER 2021
WEEKLY 6 - 8PM, MADE IN STIRLING
Join Orla Stevens for expressive painting and drawing workshops, exploring the landscape of your favourite places through mixed media acrylics, oil pastel, ink, chalks and collage.
These workshops will look at various technical and expressive skills that go in to painting and abstracting a landscape, and developing your own creative voice. Work will be guided by reference photos, to explore our favourite locations, and remind us of the moments we spent there - translating this into mark, texture and colour to capture a sense of place.
Each workshop focuses on experimentation and research, guiding you through drawing exercises and sketchbook work, developing at the end of each session to a larger work on paper.
The classes are designed to work individually, and as a series. Workshop Four will combine our skills in the final class to create a painting on wooden panel.
