Discover Your Floral Self

Sun 5 May @ Sun 5 May

Discover your Floral Self’ with artist Lucia Para
Sunday 5th May | 10am – 12.30pm
£25 – includes materials | Seminar Room | Suitable for all abilities | 18yrs +

This is a botanical themed drawing and painting workshop led by accomplished artist, illustrator and tutor, Lucia Para. Starting with simple warm up techniques based on observational drawing from fresh flowers, participants will explore shape and form using collage and stencil, exploring the journey towards abstraction, keeping as a compass the impression of fresh flowers on their individual perception.

This workshop retraces the steps of the artistic process that Lucia follows – from real flower studies to her more abstracted floral artworks (on display in the café in her exhibition FLORA). Participants will also be able to look at a range of useful resources including Lucia’s working sketchbooks.



Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
