Sixth form oil painting workshop with Ady Wright
On the first Saturday of the summer holidays, two of our sixth form art students attended an oil painting workshop, run by contemporary local artist Ady Wright.
This offered a unique opportunity to be tutored by an inspirational and very enthusiastic artist and a chance to experiment with this wonderful medium. Although thrown in at the deep end, Abi Andrews and Poppy Charlesworth took it all in their stride and proved to be a credit to WSF and the art department. They were given the unique opportunity to work on their own canvasses, with a limitless supply of paint.
Tutored by such a lively and passionate artist enabled them to work with freedom and enjoyment, which has massively increased their creative confidence and over all painting skills.
Both Abi and Poppy did amazingly well and they produced excellent seascape paintings, which they were able to take home with them at the end of the session.
Ady also, very kindly presented them each with a set of oil paints, brushes and canvases, to enable them to continue their creative experimentation.
This was a fantastic day and we all gained so much from the experience.
We are very grateful to Ady and Matt for their excellent tuition and generosity. Our students benefited enormously from this workshop and will continue to develop these new skills and techniques.
