‘Scotland’s landscapes, coastlines and museums have informed some of Lara’s most recent works, exploring the unique characteristics and natural riches of Fife. Her experience of being ‘in’, as well as looking ‘at’ the landscape can be seen in her drawings of enigmatic tree forms, atmospheric landscapes and wildlife studies, as well as her well observed museum drawings’
We are delighted to welcome the very talented Lara Scouller back to the Arthouse. She spécialisés in natural form and landscape using pastel, charcoal and mixed media and we invite you to look at her work on Instagram @larascouller. Over this two day workshop, Lara will guide you through the different stages of composing and tackling a still life using a wide variety of materials, which will enable you to create your own unique vision of a shoreline.
Lara will arrange natural materials gathered along the Fife coast including shells, skulls, feathers, seaweed and crustaceans to create a sense and feel of the shoreline. Participants are encouraged to contribute a relevant found item big or small to be incorporated into the still life.
The wide variety of textures and colours that make up the still life will be explored through mixed media. Lara will provide a selection of materials including ink, charcoal and pencils. Please bring paper and any other materials you may wish to use such as brushes, paint (acrylic, watercolour, gouache) and colourful oil/chalk pastels.
An emphasis on drawing will run throughout the workshop, with references to artists who also use nature and found objects to create lively compositions, including Elizabeth Blackadder, Mary Newcomb and Duncan Shanks.
This workshop is suitable for anyone with a basic knowledge and enthusiasm for drawing and painting.
