Instructional Painting
Workshop in Venice
with Glyn Macey
November 3 to 11, 2013
Join our tuition-based painting workshop in one
of the world’s best painting destinations, led by
a talented artist and dynamic tutor who will
boost your confidence and cover the fundamental
basics for beginner and amateur students
The tutor
‘Glyn Macey is a fabulous teacher and
communicator – by far the best one
I have been with and he is pleasant,
friendly and helpful at all times’, says
Jane Langley, who accompanied Glyn’s
Leisure Painter and The Artist trip to
Collioure in 2012. Using
acrylic, mixed media and an
array of mark-making
techniques Glyn endeavours
to capture the underlying
essence of the landscape,
and the people who live in
it. He enjoys encouraging
artists of all abilities to try
something new in their
work and to have lots of
Glyn Macey
fun doing it. His talent and
popularity is taking him into partnerships
with, and commissions for the National
Trust and RNLI. A Brush with the
Landscape (DVD) follows Glyn painting at
100 of the most beautiful NT landscapes
in the country.
Workshop structure
Each day will start with a demonstration
and teaching session explaining the day’s
topic. Students will then be encouraged
to produce their own work during the
day at various locations in Venice, using
the techniques discussed. Glyn has
structured each day so that they work in
order and each lesson follows on from
the last to give a full, rounded course.
Over the week students will learn the
fundamental basics of composition, tone,
colour and movement and how to bring
them all together for finished works, as
well as how to add elements to create
spark and energy. Glyn will be on hand
at all times to assist and advise where
necessary, and there will be Q&A sessions
for individual requirements.
As you glide across the lagoon and into the Grand Canal, you will be in
awe of the grandeur and enthralled by the uniqueness of Venice. It is
built on 117 islands and has 150 canals and 400 bridges, and the reflective
qualities of the water and the fabulous architecture bathed in glorious
light never fail to inspire artists. Venice is a painter’s paradise whether you
choose to capture the grandeur of St Mark’s, the Doges Palace, and the Rialto Bridge, or to
work in the quieter and more authentic areas around your hotel on Dorsoduro.
Practical arrangements
Everything is taken care of for you by an
accompanying programme co-ordinator from
the UK, enabling Glyn to focus on the teaching and
your work. A comfortable and perfectly located hotel
means you can paint on the doorstep from dawn to
dusk with all the major sites within walking distance
or a short vaporetto ride away. Flights are on British
Airways and all meals are included except lunches.
Cost per person: £1,995
Single room supplement: £230
Number of students: 12
This instructional workshop
is most suitable for beginners
to confident amateurs.
