Abstract landscapes is an area of art that has grown so popular in the last few years. Abstracting can be fun, enjoyable to paint and popular with buyers too. It’s proving a golden combination, creating a rich treasure trove of art to inspire others to pick a brush too.

Join Jason on this one day workshop using acrylics to explore abstraction. Jason will guide you through ways to structure your abstract artwork, so that you are free to explore more expressive painting methods and be more daring in your use of colour.

Please check below to see what you will need to bring with you.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

Reference Material
Although we will not be directly copying landscape images, some students find it helpful to look at landscape pictures while they work. If you have any inspirational images of landscape you would like to bring, then please bring them along to the workshop. Some students like to print off images of abstract landscape they feel inspired by to help them visualise their ideas. Jason will have other images to work from too.



“It was excellent, I’m just starting to paint and Jason answered all my questions and puzzles.”
