Autumn Haiku and Leaf Watercolour Artwork


Autumn Haiku and Leaf Watercolour Artwork with Pictoria

Wednesday 25th September, 6 - 9pm, £40

How arty are you?
Watch the Autumn leaves fall down.
Make a masterpiece.

This session is for anyone wanting to channel their passion for nature, art and writing.
In this relaxed and mindful two and a half hour session, Pictoria will share her watercolour painting techniques, by using specially designed watercolour worksheets to experiment with shapes and methods.

We will pick up Japanese Manga illustrator pens to play with modern lettering and composing Haiku too. Then we will put it all together for a final piece that embraces both painting, calligraphy style AND powerful mindfulness. Something you can reflect on at home, to remind yourself of your skills.

The end result will be a framed garland of seasonal leaves, whispering around a Japanese poem that you have written in your own beautiful style. Each one unique. You take away the framed piece, felt-tipped calligraphy pen too.

All materials provided during the class and there is the option to purchase the pro paint sets at the end of the class too.

Wednesday 25th September - 6-9pm, £40
