Join award-winning Georgie Mason's therapeutic, abstract and textured art class.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
What do Keith Richards, Prince Charles and Miley Cyrus have in common? They all find solace and an outlet for their creativity through art. Painting is a great way to get away from the stresses of life. Art is therapeutic and a studio is the antithesis of pace. If you have always wanted to explore painting, but don’t know how to start, or you have an idea but are unsure or worried about your ability, then you need to meet Georgie Mason.
TELL ME MORE
Georgie is an award-winning abstract landscape painter who works from her studio which is located at the charming Stepney City Farm in the middle of East London. The studio double doors open onto the farm, so you can watch the animals in an atmosphere that feels far removed from the city bustle.
Her classes are aimed at anyone who would like to spend a peaceful Saturday afternoon or Tuesday evening creating with like-minded souls. Her studio is just the space to get you motivated, and you will have access to all the materials you need to get started. Georgie will talk you through the process of colour mixing, mark-making and texture, guiding you skilfully through the process until you have created your own masterpiece.
Whether you are a complete beginner, or you want to experiment with new techniques you will find Georgie easy and empathetic, and by the way, forget the competition - there isn’t any. The classes are kept small for a reason, you are there to paint, not to panic.
