Join Marion on this years Summer Seminar selection of 3 paintings over four consecutive days. From Monday 15th thru to Thursday 18th July, 2019. This year is a little different, in that Marion is teaching all three of her staple paint mediums. Firstly, there's an oil painting of flowers with her 'Teasin Georgia' roses which uses some great ideas around antique backgrounds. Then there's a complete transformation of approach with her exciting 'Kingfisher Dawn' acrylic 2 day workshop that also uses acrylic inks. Last but not least is Marion's one day watercolour 'Flutter by Butterfly' where students will change gears yet again to create the beautiful butterfly watercolour set against its splashy loose background. 

A fantastically diverse week, where Marion will switch from one medium to another. A facinating, challenging & rewarding art journey for any student.

We love this painting so much its hanging in our kitchen !!

Bantham Beach - 2 Day Oils Seascape with Roy Lang
Sat, 09 Nov 2019 - 2 Day Workshop - 09.30am to 4.00pm

Our good friend Roy Lang is finally back with us for another of his spellbinding seascapes. It will be almost 2 years to the day when Roy presents his newest creation, the atmosperic Bantham Beach in oils to MazArt Students. As a true cornishman, Roy loves the sea & thinks of himself not as an artist, but as a sea painter. If you haven't painted with Roy before it will become evident early on that he has a true craftmans eye for the sea & how it behaves. He is excited to be teaching this workshop, as Bantham Beach is being unleashed for the first time & so we're in a priviledged position.

To be painted over two days on panoramic canvas board, this seascape will be a wonderful introduction (unless youve painted with him before) to Roy's unique style. AND he will happily teach you his skills, so you walk away a better seascape artist. If you are quick & book your place, (there's only room for 9) you'll marvel at how he creates vibrant energy in his seas & will learn really valuable techniques that you can introduce into your own art.

Join Marion on her chosen Christmas painting for 2019. Its become a tradition these past few years for MazArt to have a Christmas workshop for students to get into the festive mood nice n early. We've had lanterns & Victorian Shopping & now we have a gorgeous Santa opening his own presents after a hard night on the sleigh!

In this workshop Marion will teach you how to create the gentle images of the baubles in the splash of the colourful backgound, whilst working the watercolour bold enough to really bring out the central image of Santa Claus. You will also be using irridescent watercolur paint to give sparkle to the gift wrapping. An ideal painting to turn into that family Christmas Card. 

A great day beckons with the usual Christmas cakes & mince pies.
