Mindful Photography Morning

You will learn to slow down, to use your camera or phone to really look, and look again at what is around you. This is not about producing the ‘perfect’ image. It is about using your lens to see the world in a different way and to capture what you see. Much of the morning will be spent in the beautiful Linda Vista Gardens of Abergavenny. During this time you will have a chance to wander, be quiet, slow down and capture images that reflect your experiences. Returning to the venue, you will be able to print out 2 or 3 of your images that you have found most inspiring and use these as the starting point for your afternoon of art.

Afternoon of Art

After spending a wonderful morning in nature, you will be guided through the creation of your own beautiful artwork. Once again, this is not about producing a ‘perfect’ picture; it is about enjoying the process, the colours, the feel of the paint as you let your creativity flow. A canvas and all paints will be provided for you so you can take your painting home with you.

Throughout the day tea, coffee and herbal teas will be provided as well as yummy homemade cake. Lunchtime offers you the opportunity to bring a packed lunch and each venue has outdoor space if you want to picnic. Alternatively you may wish to explore one of the many lovely independent cafes of Nevill Street and we will be happy to advise on the day.
