A BIG PAINTING DAY!

A BIG PAINTING DAY!

APRIL 24 A BIG PAINTING DAY! NEW! Go large in figurative or abstract style. 10.30-4.30 £67 [Bold Beginners & Improvers] Any or mixed media.


They say ‘size matters’ and that’s definitely the theme for today! But large is comparative. Artists often find they have a natural format, some paint miniatures, some medium, some large. School often instilled a small/medium format in us and there we stayed, but experimenting to find your optimum size is liberating. Yet at home space may be an issue, or all that blank canvas too daunting.


Or it feels like materials would be expensive [ try emulsion tester pots and cheaper pound shop acrylics to try this maybe]. So this is an opportunity to have strength in no's, lots of support and to go for it! We'll discuss balance of space, focal areas, scaling up, appropriate tools and bold shapes. Experiment with your style and optimum size. It can release freedom and boldness!


Any subject, any style goes today and you might want to find some inspiration pics and prepare a composition in advance so you have lots of time to paint, or use mine. Consider big tools too that cover space fast ..hint....our favourite kitchen sponge is ideal [see materials list].


Bring the size of canvas [or heavy paper and board] you’d like to try, if you can carry it.... we have the space! Or a3 may be your large? The only rule is that you need a larger cover to protect the surrounding area and if you are likely to paint on the floor [ also liberating ] cushion recommended! Liana will help you plan and adapt to the size throughout.


So, do you dare?!??!!?! Don't miss this chance, it’s go large or go home!


Materials suggestions here, allow time to gather!


Come and see our new style, at a glance programme here, We have new courses and are back to fuller days and half days following your feedback. With a ‘meet the tutor’ session to get a feel for Liana’s well-structured, progressive classes [ come and ask any questions]; lots of speciality workshops with fun techniques in differing mediums and a series of ongoing courses to come and learn or improve your watercolour or acrylic painting. Hopefully there’s something for everyone, come and treat yourself to a day of painting in a light airy studio, with good company and always some laughter and surprises!

Austen's Women:Lady Susan

Austen's Women: LADY SUSAN

Dyad Productions


From the award-winning creators of Austen's Women, A Christmas Carol, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic, Christmas Gothic, and A Room of One's Own.


Austen's Women are back - in a brand-new show! Devil-may-care Lady Susan, the coquettish black widow, hunting down not one, but two, fortunes; oppressed, rebellious daughter Frederica; longsuffering sister-in-law Catherine; family matriarch Mrs De Courcy; and insouciant best friend, Alicia.


Return to the Regency period (or rather, Georgian) in this darkly comic tale of society and the women trapped within it; their struggles, their desires, their temptations and manipulations - and at the vanguard, Lady Susan: charming, scheming, witty, and powerful; taking on society and making it her own. But has she met her match?


Based on Jane Austen's first full-length work from 1794, and created entirely from letters, the piece is performed by Rebecca Vaughan and directed by Andrew Margerison.


Created in collaboration with The Old Town Hall, Hemel Hempstead.


"If you haven't seen Dyad Productions' work before, you simply must" (British Theatre Guide)


"Some of the most electrifying character work available, up to and including Berkoff" (Fringe Review)

GUIDED PAINTING MAY 2024

1 MAY GUIDED PAINTING New!   Painting a beautiful colour wheel and learning more about colour.   10.30 -4.30  £67  [Utter beginners /improvers. Acrylic]


Colour is endlessly enticing and none more so than a full colour wheel that is so beautifully painted it deserves a place on our wall or in the studio to inspire us. Yet colour is complicated and can be mystifying to the student artist.


Today Liana will demonstrate an attractive acrylic version on a square canvas that you can follow confidently, step by step and have a completed painting by the end of the day. Trained in colour analysis, she will simultaneously explain the bewildering array of colour jargon in a down to earth way.


Using glazes, palette knife impasto and other techniques, beginners can keep it simple whilst improvers may want to embellish more.Along the way we are going to explore and learn the placing of colours on a colour wheel [the hues],learn how to mix and create their variations and consider the relationships that work well and those that don’t. Clarifying the difference between warms and cools and their uses and helping you ‘get your eye in’ to judging colours and using them more confidently.


Originally created for beginners, our fun guided days build in easy stages, yet have become popular amongst improvers too as you learn artists tips and tricks for painting, assessing and refining a painting all in a day. This is an ideal ‘have a go’ start for utter beginners. So all welcome! We have gift vouchers if you want to encourage someone to start.


Specific colours will be particularly needed today so do look at the materials list below in good time. If you are an absolute beginner and want to try before you buy, I offer a £5 [cash payable to tutor on the day] intro pack of canvas, palette, sufficient paint and loan of brushes, if you order this with the box office by the friday  26th April. Please bring the additional household items suggested on the list.


 


Our ‘at a glance’ programme for the season is here to help you plan. Come and treat yourself to an enjoyable day with like-minded company, in a bright, airy studio, coffee nearby and there’s always some laughter and surprises!


Students paint for all sorts of reasons...skills, an enjoyable hobby, social life, self-expression, relaxation and so on. Liana’s sessions are considered good value, inspiring and packed with tips ; several serious students have even gone on to sell their work.


Liana is a seasoned trainer, therapist and artist, skilled at breaking down learning steps, instilling confidence and creating a warm, fun, supportive atmosphere. All students are also invited to join her Artists Circle community for free challenges, news, critiquing and teaching.

Frida (12A)

Frida

Frida


A raw and magical journey into the life of iconic artist Frida Kahlo, told through her own words from diaries, letters, essays, and interviews. Vividly brought to life with lyrical animation inspired by her unforgettable artwork.


The film draws upon many multimedia elements, including but not limited to voice acting, animation, and restoration of materials in old and antiquated formats. The words of Kahlo herself, taken from her own writing, are narrated by Fernanda Echevarría, and Gutierrez worked with several animators based in Mexico to add a visual counterpart to her film's sound. In order to shape and inform the timeline of Kahlo's life and career, Gutierrez drew upon American historian Hayden Herrara's 1983 book Frida: A Biography of Frida Kahlo and directors Karen and David Crommie's 1976 The Life and Death of Frida Kahlo. With permission, Gutierrez was given access to Herrera's research which she had used for his book. In Herrera's attic, Gutierrez found a diversity of transcripts, writing, and other primary sources

Gigspanner Trio (Live on Stage)

Gigspanner Trio

"There’s something of the proverbial elder statesman about Peter Knight, in terms of his place in music, which cannot be overstated. It’s not just in the quality of his playing...there’s a focus on the sheer inventiveness of Peter’s playing, in the adventurous arrangements he shares with his collaborators, and in his musical leadership”


Northern Sky Magazine


Since his inaugural performance with the fledgling Steeleye Span in 1970, Peter Knight has been a mainstay of the British folk scene.


Never one to rest on his laurels, Peter has carved a reputation as a relentlessly questing musician “as mercurial as quicksilver” (Simon Jones/fRoots), and it is never quite so apparent as in his work with the various Gigspanner line-ups.


In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, Peter turned his full attention to the Gigspanner Trio and established their reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene, inspiring Maverick magazine to write "Gigspanner are pushing at the boundaries, and in the process are making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer" 5***** Maverick Magazine


Described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond”, they take self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, and with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator” (Spiral Earth).

Exhibition On Screen: John Singer Sargent; Fashion & Swagger

Exhibition On Screen


JOHN SINGER SARGENT: FASHION & SWAGGER


John Singer Sargent is known as the greatest portrait artist of his era. What made his ‘swagger’ portraits remarkable was his power over his sitters, what they wore and how they were presented to the audience. Through interviews with curators, contemporary fashionistas and style influencers, Exhibition on Screen’s film will examine how Sargent’s unique practice has influenced modern art, culture and fashion.


 


Filmed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Tate Britain, London, the exhibition reveals Sargent’s power to express distinctive personalities, power dynamics and gender identities during this fascinating period of cultural reinvention. Alongside 50 paintings by Sargent sit stunning items of clothing and accessories worn by his subjects, drawing the audience into the artist’s studio. Sargent’s sitters were often wealthy, their clothes costly, but what happens when you turn yourself over to the hands of a great artist? The manufacture of public identity is as controversial and contested today as it was at the turn of the 20th century, but somehow Sargent’s work transcends the social noise and captures an alluring truth with each brush stroke.


 


Step into the glittering world of fashion, scandal and shameless self-promotion that made John Singer Sargent the painter who defined an era.


 


Explore the unique creative process of the late 19th century’s favourite portrait artist and the way in which his portraits captured the spirit of a vibrant and rapidly changing age.

The Lavender Hill Mob

The Lavender Hill Mob


The release of a brand new 4K restoration of the beloved British Ealing Studios comedy classic, THE LAVENDER HILL MOB, which will be released in UK cinemas on 29 March .


Directed by Charles Crichton (A Fish Called Wanda), written by T.E.B. Clarke (winner of the Best Original Screenplay Oscar), and starring Alec Guinness (Kind Hearts & Coronets, The Man in The White Suit), Stanley Holloway (My Fair Lady), Sid James (Carry On films) and Alfie Bass (Alfie), the film tells the enduringly funny story of a nobody bank employee’s ingenious plan to rob the Bank of England and the motley crew that he assembles to carry out the raid.


The film was extremely popular at the box office on its original release in 1951 and won several awards including the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, the BAFTA Award for Best British Film, and the Best Actor Academy Award nomination for Alec Guinness.


THE LAVENDER HILL MOB was restored in 4K using a 35mm duplicating positive as the original negative was unavailable. Thanks to the latest film scanning technology and restoration tools, the Studiocanal team were able to achieve a high standard image from the positive that was used. Silver Salt Restoration restored and colour graded the film producing a new 4K DCP, HDR Dolby Vision and HD master.

Simon and Garfunkel:Through the Years (Live on Stage)

Simon and Garfunkel:Through the Years

Critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest tribute shows, Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years continues to delight audiences across the globe. Featuring stunning vocal harmonies from world-class musicians, this spectacular concert transports you on a journey through the epic songs and history of the much-loved Simon and Garfunkel.


“One of the greatest tribute shows anywhere in the world”

Stuart Cameron, BBC and ITV Broadcaster


The show is a celebration of the unprecedented rise to fame of two boys from Queens, New York, who went on to become the most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960s, selling 38 million albums in the US alone, and receiving 10 Grammy Awards. In 1981, they performed to over half a million people in their hometown of New York, and in 1990 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

​Collectively known as Bookends, Dan Haynes and Pete Richards have been fronting Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years since its creation in 2011. Much like their idols, they became friends at school and could not resist singing together from a tender age.


Alongside stops in London’s West End, the show has toured extensively around the UK, Europe, United States and Australia, attracting packed houses night after night. With consecutive sell-out runs since 2014 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, they are championed as "one of the best vocal groups touring today", whose sounds are ‘’simply breathtaking’’.

Featuring all the major hits such as The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and the iconic Bridge Over Troubled, don’t miss out on this unmissable show.

The Jive Aces - Keeping The Show On The Road

The Jive Aces - Keeping The Show On The Road

The Jive Aces - Keeping The Show On The Road Tour


 


Together for over 25 years, The Jive Aces have been keeping the show on the road for three decades and become renowned worldwide for their high-energy live show having toured in over 40 countries. The band aim to spread smiles and cheer with their swinging music and classic vintage style from crooning smooth ballads to blasting honking rhythm & blues. Having played for Her Majesty the Queen, selling out the Royal Albert Hall, becoming the first band to reach the finals of Britain’s Got Talent or just entertaining at one of their 250 live shows a year, they continuously showcase why they are the UKs No.1 Jive & Swing band!


 


With their trademark yellow suits and a repertoire that stretches from the timeless tunes of the swing era to the glitz of the Rat Pack with a dash of classic rock & roll, they perform songs in their unique upbeat style by such great artists as Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Sammy Davis Jr. and Ella Fitzgerald as well as a selection of superb original tunes.


 


The Jive Aces have earned their reputation and won several important awards including the City Of Derry International Music Award, the Variety Club Of Great Britain Award for their contribution to music & charity work and several film festival awards for their high production value music videos.


 


They have worked with many celebrities such as Van Morrison, Chick Corea (who performs two songs on their Recipe for Rhythm album), Kenny Ball (appearing on their King of the Swingers album, Kenny last ever recording), John Travolta, The Proclaimers, The Undertones, Status Quo, Keely Smith, Jamie Cullum, Priscilla Presley and Kirstie Allie to name just a few.


 


When the Jive Aces released a music video for their upbeat version of a much-loved theme song in the UK, Bring Me Sunshine it immediately went viral and to date has over 3.7 million views on YouTube. It is so popular in fact that a Doctor in Seattle actually prescribed the video to his patients to cure "the blues"! Their version of the song has also been used in countless TV shows including thrice on Strictly Come Dancing.


 


At the start of the pandemic with all their shows having just been postponed, the band decided to do an online live-streaming show called the "JiveStream" to keep up spirits. Not knowing how long this would last, they promised to do it every day which ended up being 500 consecutive, daily shows and as a result made a host of new fans and friends all over the globe from the USA to India and from Australia to Ireland. This is where the idea for their new album and tour "Keeping The Show On The Road" originated because through thick and thin they fought hard to bring people the music despite huge barriers!


 


Their new album, also called "Keeping The Show On The Road" celebrates the song that have become live favourites over the past few years and the band has aimed to pack in the energy of a live experience into the recording.


 


The band are now glad to be back on the road doing what they do best, delivering their high-energy vintage style entertainment to audiences of all ages!


 


Reviews:


The Jive Aces are absolutely wonderful - the best I’ve seen since Louis Prima. Keely Smith


Absolutely Brilliant! That really put me in a good mood- Simon Cowell


A heart stopping, floor filling, blaster of a set that was as assured as any live music act I’ve ever seen. Rousing and entertaining stuff. Blackpool


The Jive Aces exploded onto the stage, and I mean that almost literally! Some bands warm up a little: these guys hit it hard from the first note and never let up - The Gretsch Pages


The Jive Aces have to be one of the most entertaining and multi-talented acts around. Brilliant musicianship combined with a madcap sense of fun on stage- The Stage


Jive Aces rocked us, literally. They raised the roof with their quirky suits and energetic moves - Dean Midas Maynard - Huffington Post

HARD TO RESIST! OIL & ACRYLIC* FIGURES

HARD TO RESIST! OIL & ACRYLIC* FIGURES

HARD TO RESIST! OIL & ACRYLIC* FIGURES New!


[beginner/improvers. *Oil pastel and water colour can also be used]


5 JUNE 10.30-4.30  £67


Using a minimal amount of paint, we will create glowing passages of colours over a resist base. Resist techniques are great fun as different edges and textures are created automatically and characterfully, adding new dimensions to our work. Using the principle that oil and water don’t mix, we will use resistance to highlight light and shade areas, then glaze them with rich, loose washes. The effect is wonderful and encourages us to be bold and brave with that perennial favourite the figure.


After a discussion about light, painting form, compostion and figure proportions, we’ll have an easy warm up exercise and start some sketching from clothed /nude model photos.  Learning to add the resist areas, then the fun starts as we reveal the light and shadow on figures with bold oil or water colour washes. More can be overlaid as we develop our design.


Moody limited colour pictures [think Picaso’s blue period] can be created or full-on colour as you build the glazes, letting the three dimensions of the figure appear. Magic!


[Bold beginners are welcome, we will be jumping straight into the subject,[ look out for our watercolour/acrylic intros for more on technique etc] you’ll get lots of support along the way.


Materials can be minimal today, please select from list here.


Our ‘at a glance’ programme for the season is here to help you plan. Come and treat yourself to an enjoyable day with like-minded company, in a bright, airy studio, coffee nearby and there’s always some laughter and surprises!


Students paint for all sorts of reasons...skills, an enjoyable hobby, social life, self-expression, relaxation and so on.Liana’s sessions are considered good value, inspiring and packed with tips; several serious students have even gone on to sell their work.


 


Liana is a seasoned trainer, therapist and artist, skilled at breaking down learning steps, instilling confidence and creating a warm, fun, supportive atmosphere. All students are also invited to join her Artists Circle community for free challenges, news, critiquing and teaching.

Exhibition On Screen MY NATIONAL GALLERY

The National Gallery of London is one of the world’s greatest art

galleries. It is full of masterpieces, an endless resource of history,

an endless source of stories. But whose stories are told? Which art

has the most impact and on whom? The power of great art lies in its

ability to communicate with anyone, no matter their art historical

knowledge, their background, their beliefs.


This film gives voice to those who work at the gallery – from cleaner

to curator, security guard to director – who identify the one artwork

that means the most to them and why. An assortment of people from

all walks of life who have a strong connection to the gallery make

surprising choices of both well-known and lesser-known artworks.

Finally, some well-known celebrities explain what they head for

when they visit the gallery. These stories are used as a lens through

which to explore the 200-year history of the National Gallery and

what the future may hold for this spectacular space.

You can then paint in your chosen medium or perhaps mixed media as you richly embellish your design. The colours and stripes of a tiger lend themselves to a bold painting, do you dare? ;-]

PAINTING REFLECTIONS IN WATER  New!  [beginners /improvers. Watercolour or acrylics]


3 JULY 10.30-4.30  £67


There’s a reason we like water, it’s gentle flow can still and calm us and give us the space for reflection. But today we will concentrate on the other type of reflection that shimmies across still water, mirroring and enhancing the surroundings.


After a warm-up we will select reference materials and plan a picture that appeals. With demonstrations to highlight the ‘language’] used to describe water, we see how simplicity is key. Visiting the work of Dolores Phelps and Ron Ranson [who Liana trained with] to see how simple, loose strokes and washes can best create watery scenes. Ron is known for his use of the hake brush and certainly large brushes will help us quickly create stunning reflections.

TRIPTYCH PAINTING

TRIPTYCH PAINTING

TRIPTYCH PAINTING Divide for impact! New!


10 JULY 10.30-4.30  £67 [Bold beginners to improvers, any media]


Classically, triptychs were the province of religious paintings, amplifying their size and impact. Today the subject will be your choice, it may be spiritual, it may be nature, it may be abstract, anything goes!. Triptychs can be really stunning and make a powerful impact on a wall. They are also fun, as it adds in a different kind of challenge and pushes our design ideas.


After a warm-up, we’ll consider how to design for a triptych, the relationship of the canvases or paper, the appropriate space between etc.


You'll probably want to come with an idea in mind so you can choose appropriately sized grounds [canvas/paper] but I will have my trusty file with me if you are still waiting for inspiration to strike. After planning you will have the whole day to paint in the Uni-painting style or 3 related paintings.


Liana is available for support, critique and handy hints throughout, she’s known for her irrepressible positivity and ability to show you how to turn lost causes around! We often learn more from our mistakes as we correct them, so the aim for today is three related interesting paintings ......and learning a new approach to take forward.

SKETCHING TEIGNMOUTH

SKETCHING TEIGNMOUTH

SKETCHING TEIGNMOUTH-An outdoor ‘plein air ‘day PART 1  


[beginners/improvers. Drawing media, simple colour]


7 AUG 10.30-4.30  £67


It’s become a tradition that we have a ‘plein air’ painting day in the summer; with so many good subjects to draw right on the doorstep of the Pavilions we have a lovely opportunity. Working in front of a subject live, lets us hear, smell, see, feel all the information around us and respond to it. We can select and portray what we are liking rather than including everything as we often do with a photo. This can make our sketches simpler and more powerful, standing alone as a piece of work or as a study for  a painting. Watch out for part 2 when we can turn our sketches into paintings.


Yet outdoor work can feel challenging, exposing and tricky. Meeting first in our studio, we’ll start with a brief discussion about picking good spots, handling interruptions by the public and having the right mindset. A quick reminder of drawing ‘language’ then we’re off to the seaside to find something to draw. Bring your sunhat and cream! We'll hope for a fine day and if not we’ll work in the studio.


Coffee and ice cream opportunities abound! But packing materials lightly is an art so do consult the materials list here in good time.


Our ‘at a glance’ programme for the season is here to help you plan. Come and treat yourself to an enjoyable day with like-minded company, in a bright, airy studio, coffee nearby and there’s always some laughter and surprises!


Students paint for all sorts of reasons...skills, an enjoyable hobby, social life, self-expression, relaxation and so on. Liana’s sessions are considered good value, inspiring and packed with tips; several serious students have even gone on to sell their work.


 


Liana is a seasoned trainer, therapist and artist, skilled at breaking down learning steps, instilling confidence and creating a warm, fun, supportive atmosphere. All students are also invited to join her Artists Circle community for free challenges, news, critiquing and teaching.

The Kast Off Kinks 2024 (Live on Stage)

The Kast Off Kinks 2024

The iconic British rock band, The Kinks, are often cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time.

Although the band’s popularity in the UK waned in the 1970s, they found new commercial success, particularly in the USA, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and returned to the UK top 20 in 1983 with Come Dancing. The Kinks continued as a recording and gigging band until 1996, when the Davies brothers went their separate ways with solo careers.

The Kast Off Kinks formed in 1994 to keep the music playing on, and it is what the name implies - the original line-up consisted of the band that played Lola (apart from Ray and Dave) - Avory, Dalton and Gosling - together  In 2009, the line-up became the band that played Come Dancing - Avory, Gibbons and Rodford (respectively the Kinks’ longest-serving drummer, keyboard player and bassist) - still with Dave Clarke covering for the Davies brothers. Jim then became very busy playing with The Zombies and Argent, so John Dalton was persuaded out of retirement and went on to play very regularly with The Kast Off Kinks.

Very sadly, we lost Jim Rodford in 2018 and Ian Gibbons in 2019. The Kast Off Kinks played the Official Kinks Fan Club gathering in November 2019, with Mark Haley on keyboards, but then John Dalton announced his retirement (again) and the COVID pandemic arrived, so The Kast Off Kinks played no more until the Official Kinks Fan Club gathering in November 2021, when Mike Steed, on bass, joined Dave Clarke, Mick Avory and Mark Haley, with guest performances by Bob Henrit on drums and John Dalton doing some vocals.

Now The Kast Off Kinks, comprising Mick, Dave, Mark and Mike, are back on the road.
