Dora’s ‘Absolute Beginners’ series of workshops has inspired many to pick up a paint brush with curiosity and trepidation and to put it down with confidence and self-satisfaction. Each week will be a step by step process, starting with an introduction to materials, working through tool use and techniques, light values, dimension, subject matter and composition. Students will work both in-studio and plein-air.
Dora’s emphasis as an instructor is on personal expression and the development of students’ individual styles in a collaborative, supportive and encouraging atmosphere. There is no right or wrong way in a Dora class! Great attention is paid to each individual student and his/her work. Colour is a point of focus, encouraging a vibrant, assertive and fun palette.
