Would you like to explore your creative side and spend a few hours painting with watercolours in the inspiring setting of the Lady Lever Art Gallery?

As part of our Picturing Venice exhibition free, event programme we have linked up with Wirral artist Steven Hersey to run watercolour workshops exploring painting composition and technique. 

The first of two workshops was held this week and resulted in some beautiful artworks from our participants, all of whom honed their artistic skills with guidance from Steven by focusing on image making techniques in the free 3 hour workshop.

Vision of Venice participants workAll participants created a watercolour painting of a typical Venetian scene, which they were able to take away with them.  This free workshop will be repeated on 22nd July, 1  – 4pm and can be booked online.

Comments from this weeks group included:

“Lovely way to spend an afternoon!  Inspirational. Thank you Steve.”
“Really enjoyed the workshop and learnt new techniques.”
“Excellent tuition in easy stages.”
“First class! Pace and content well judged. Great and well worth attending.”

Do come and join us!
