Would you like to spend time drawing in a small friendly group with refreshments and all materials provided? Over two Saturday mornings professional artist Catherine Weld will offer a carefully structured approach that provides the framework within which you will undertake varied and interesting exercises that enhance observation, concentration and visual awareness. You will explore a lots of different media – pencils, charcoal, ink, paint and collage, and work in a range of scales from sketch book to huge!
Catherine Weld has exhibited widely; amongst other venues, as a painter at the RA in London, the RUA in Belfast and the RHA, Dublin, and as a facilitator of hospice-based, patient-led projects, in London at the Riverside in Hammersmith and The British Museum. Between 2003 and 2011 she was artist in residence at hospices in Dorset, UK and Inverness, Scotland. In 2017 she completed a successful 10 week residency at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre. Her creative aim is to bring the sensation of the subject to the viewer as a direct experience through the physicality of the medium in which she is working: oil paint, charcoal, pencil or anything else that answers the requirements of the moment.
