Serendipity Nature Drawing
Thursday 14th July 2-5pm
Let happy accidents happen with this creative, fun and experimental workshop. Create colourful pictures and patterns using beautiful leaves, layers of delicately sprayed paint and a touch of line drawing.
You'll work on a range of papers and have the opportunity to make a few cards too.
The cost of this workshop includes the cost of all materials.

Creative Summer School Soiree – Saturday 16th July, 6–8.30pm
At the end of the week, we welcome you to join us for a Summer School Soiree!
Students and tutors will be invited to exhibit their work at the House, enjoy a glass of fizz, and celebrate the variety of crafts made throughout the week. If you would like to exhibit the work that you have created during the Creative Summer School then please let your tutor or the Kingshill House team know. Works will be displayed for the Soiree evening only, and then you are free to take them home or collect them the following week.
About your tutor
Jo is a Wiltshire based artist working from my loft studio, inspired by the countryside, people, places and life here in the UK or on travels abroad. In 2015 I purposefully reconnected with my own creative interests, primarily through drawing. She loves to draw from observation and to reflect on and capture her daily life through her Drawing Diaries.
Jo runs workshops in a range of settings, and online, supporting others to draw through building confidence, teaching new skills and techniques and encouraging a personal exploration and enjoyment of drawing. In contrast, she makes carefully observed botanical studies, seeking to capture and emphasise colour, texture and shape. She drew from nature 'almost' every day of the year in her 2018 Drawing Diary.
Jo trained at Chelsea School of Art achieving a BA (Hons) Public Art/Art for Architecture. She also works as a freelance Arts Manager in community arts, latterly producing large scale outdoor arts festivals and walking festivals.
