About Bonnard’s Garden: Short Course

3 Day Course, 23rd May - 6th June, Thursday 10am - 3pm

Tutor: Jemma Derbyshire


This 3 day course, split over 3 consecutive Thursdays, will use the beautiful spring garden around our studio as a stimulus! Studying the work of Bonnard's "Jardin", colour, mark and understanding light will form the structure of this short course. From how to gather informative drawings, to making decisions about hue and tone, in order to make ambitious paintings in response to the setting, this course is ideal for anyone that loves colour, mark making and paint.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Bonnard’s Garden: Short Course are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
