Sarah Bee PS
Tuesday 20th – Thursday 22nd June
Sarah moved from working as a graphic designer into makeup and body painting for the film, photography and advertising industries. Later she studied watercolour at The Heatherley School of Fine Art in London.
She began to develop her individual style after she was introduced to pastels whilst painting with the Blockley Group. Working on mount board she builds layers of Gesso, acrylic paint and chalk pastel to achieve a lively and textured image of the landscape.
A member of the Pastel Society, Sarah exhibits regularly at the Mall Gallery and has received several awards including the Caran d’ Ache award in 2014. She has completed corporate commissions and has her work in private collections in the UK and in Europe.
During the course Sarah will take students through her simple mixed media process. She will demonstrate, but emphasis will be on individual tuition. The group will paint in the studio after making sketches of the local landscape, but in case of poor weather it will be advisable to bring your own existing sketches or photographs as source material.
