Day 7 - An Art workshop in Bahrain

Art workshop to be held in March. Registrations are open!
I will be travelling to Manama, Bahrain in March and intend to conduct a workshop to help you with basic sketching and painting, in person! It will be for ladies and kids over 10 years old. (It might get a wee bit difficult if you are younger, so please understand.) The duration of the workshop is for five days, each day being 2 hours.

That being said, if you are unable to cope up with the pace and need the workshop to spill over to the next day for your work to complete, that is fine J !

I will be available from March 8th for a month. At the moment, am looking at two batches per day, one being the morning batch of 10am to 12pm and the afternoon/evening batch of 3pm to 5pm. 

You do not need to know how to sketch to be able to attend the workshop. The structure of the workshop has been made taking into account that all of you are sketching for the first time.

You will learn how to use a basic pencil, how to observe perspective, how to use the colour pencil as well as acrylic paint. You will be taught to sketch basic shapes moving onto more complex landscape and still life. You will be sketching from live objects as well as from pictures, which will help you transition better.

The materials you will need are as follows:
A4 sheets – approximately 15 – 20 sheets 
4 canvas sheets or you could buy a canvas pad which has multiple sheets
·        1 canvas
·        2b pencil
·        any pen (Ball point/gel)
·        Colour pencil 12/24 colours
·        Acrylic paint box 12 colours (20ml)
·        1 water container (Any old plastic container will do)
·         Flat brush set
·        1 palette (any white flat surface will be fine, eg. styrofoam plate is fine and most convenient)
·          rag cloth

*For further details, such as canvas size, venue or any other doubt, please call Anees Zaheera on 38317415 or visit my website
