“People are all we’ve got” -workshop part of Art Exhibition

Join Trudy in  this “expressionist exhibition exploring the self”.  A journey through art, emotion and self-reflection at the Salisbury Centre in an exhibition, exploring portraiture and figurative painting in an expressive, representational style. It is a brave expression of self through vivid colour and imagery – an exhibition focusing on inner states and emotions.’

 Workshop 5 ‘’People are all we’ve got’’

 Monday, 24th of October, 5pm-6.45pm

Bring a partner with you! This workshop is all about connecting and admiring each other. Capturing each other in portrait form upon description is the main goal – they describe you to you (how they see you!) and you draw, paint, illustrate!

” I admire the eyes you have, they are round and full of love”.
”Your smile is wide and it brightens the room”.

Once everyone is a little more comfortable, some body painting is in order! Just go crazy – and remember to always attempt to capture the person in front of you in colours, symbols and words.


 

Exhibition Closing – Samhain

Monday, 30th of October,  3pm-6pm

One last look at the painting – examining how your feelings towards them have changed (if they have changed) – an invitation to write a letter to your fear, your love, your sadness, to share it around the fire circle, burn it or keep it – most importantly, believe in that freedom you have with your emotions, that it’s you who owns them, and they are yours to keep or let go.

About Trudy

A student of many things, a creator of numerous trinkets and a connector of all kinds of people. Painting has been with me ever since I could hold a paintbrush, and inspiring people around me have kept me going. I love learning from the world, from people and from myself, which reflects deeply in my work, dominated by vivid colours and simple, yet effective subject matter – faces and bodies. I attempt to celebrate the sensitivity and pureness of what means to be human – and how glorious and scary it may sometimes feel.
