CreateArt Experience with Christine Spence

The ‘CreateArt’ Experience is back for an Autumn Session at Hatfield Park, hosted by Christine Spence. Christine will carefully take you through a drawing and painting workshop to inspire and encourage creativity in a wide range of art materials.

Sunday 5th November 2023
Keeping a Nature Journal/Creative Sketchbook

You will be shown methods, materials and techniques to use for keeping a nature journal that will inspire you creatively and enable you to keep a personal nature diary.
If you like foraging and keeping a record of the natural treasures out there to observe more closely or / and inspire your artwork, this is a fun but informative and creative practise session with Christine.

After a 2 course lunch served in the Coach House Kitchen, the session will focus on different ways that can be used to choose your subject matter, and techniques to help keep records, learning how to use a sketchbook and gather visual information and references. There will be a practical sketchbook session where Christine will share practical tips and insights about working with art in the great outdoors.

To finish the day, you can enjoy raising a toast to your experience with a complimentary glass of champagne whilst admiring your beautiful creations.

All ticket holders will receive a complimentary return ticket to the gardens to complete their art work if required.

To simplify your art experience all necessary materials will be provided for you to use. Bring your own favourites if you prefer.
