Art Classes

Katie Sollohub has been teaching art to all ages for over 15 years. With a wealth of experience and knowledge she encourages an alternative approach to traditional art practice.

“My approach to teaching is about freeing up expectations and enjoying the journey of discovery. In order to increase possibilities I encourage students to develop and explore their own ideas leading to exciting and unexpected responses.”

Available for one off workshops, talks and demonstrations, as well as regular classes, short courses and one to one. She also offers Skype tutorials for long distance learning.

Drawing Workshops – at The Victoria Institute, Arundel – monthly Mondays or Fridays 10-4.30pm £70 (discount if booked 1 month in advance)

Mon 18 Sep – Still life, mixed media with Collage - simple objects, creating semi abstract compositions, using colour, shape, pattern and texture. Making your own collage paper (like Matisse) as well as working with found scraps of paper, plus your usual drawing (and painting) materials.

Mon 30 October – Still life, Charcoal and Ink - working freely and gesturally with ink and charcoal from large, organic, natural still life set ups.

Fri 17 November – Expressive, Gestural Drawing, with charcoal and other mixed media – no subject. Going as large as you would like, using the space of walls and floors where possible.

Fri 8 Dec – Expressive, Gestural Drawing – finding a narrative - starting with mark making (and/or revisiting work from the previous session), experimenting with materials, we will see what emerges from the marks, and use editing processes, to layer, change, veil and reveal, whatever subject matter might want to emerge. Allow for a bit of fantasy, story telling, fairy tales, imagination…you may find yourself inspired by the space of the building, or bring your own source material if you have something specific in mind.
