THE USEFUL ART CLASS

The Useful Art Class is a series of workshops that will provide you with the essential skills

fundamental to drawing and painting. The classes are short, concentrated sessions that focus very clearly on the principles that are foundational to creating 2D artworks. Sessions are taught by practicing artists who between them have over 30 years of experience within the art world and will equip you with practical knowledge that will help you with your art practice.

 

The Useful Art Class is delivered in the heart of Birmingham’s creative quarter, the Custard Factory, Digbeth, in exhibition space attached to the teaching artists’ studios

Lucy Fiona Morrison

Morrison has established a reputation as a painter renowned for capturing the character and essence of the land. Driven by a desire to remind viewers of the beauty of the landscape and inspired by the diverse vistas of the UK, Morrison is compelled to translate the breadth of colours, shapes and forms onto canvas. Morrison’s gestural oil paintings are composed of expressive colours and richly textured brushwork, offering abstract representations of the British Isles. Morrison’s paintings are held in private collections internationally.
