Meet Vandy Massey

Acrylic | Mixed Media | Watercolor

This group will focus on ways to developing a loose, expressive painting style in water-based media.Although this group will cover mainly watercolour, painters who work in acrylics or gouache, and want to develop a looser style will also benefit from the discussion and the work. We will be discussing techniques in water-based media (watercolour, inks, linework) to build loose watercolour expertise. The focus will be on learning to develop compositions and harness the strengths of the medium to create compelling paintings. The approach is suitable for those wishing to paint figurative loose watercolours as well as anyone wanting to develop abstraction in their work.

We will discuss ways of stepping back and evaluating our own work, and methods of moving forward when artists feel stuck. Along the way, we will cover colour theory and mark making to ensure every artist has the tools and the development space to uncover their own unique style. In the safe environment of a supportive group, we will unpack the fears we all face when creating art, and learn to accept the wabi-sabi philosophy of embracing the perfection of imperfections. There’s nothing more thrilling than the emergence of a spontaneous brushstroke at just the right moment. I have a relaxed mentoring style which helps artists to counter any fearful qualms they might experience.

Meet Kate Green

Acrylic | Mixed Media

My passion is getting alongside artists and putting courage into them, helping them unearth their own unique creativity that the world is waiting to see.
I love combining a bit of order and chaos in my artwork, and as a mentor I specialize in helping artists find order in their own chaos.

As creatives we always have a million ideas – I can help you know where to start. We all have big beautiful dreams and ambitions – I can help you work out how to transform these into action.

My goal is to bring peace, clarity and tangible progress in place of overwhelm and self doubt. To help artists create space for their creativity to flourish, to guard & nurture their joy in the art making process, to build confidence and structure that enables them to share it with the world.
