Monday 10th June, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at Creative Space, Matlock, Derbyshire, DE4 2JG


With Diana Ali

from BBC 1’s The Big Painting Challenge









Explore & play with your Creative, expressive potential with fellow explorers during this fun & relaxed day experimenting with different media.

Diana Ali from BBC 1’s The big Painting Challenge will tutor and mentor participants through various drawing and painting techniques. she will guide you to be independent and confident in creating big, expressive and bold pieces of work which come from your own ideas. Diana believes in artists being experimental and playful and will work with the group as a whole and 1-1 so you can make the most of your abilities. some techniques will include expressive drawing, learning to observe and seeing what paint can do. You will be working with charcoal, graphite, collage and acrylics but more excitingly with untraditional tools.


I am so delighted to be able to bring you this opportunity to explore creative & experimental ways of using various different types of media in un-conventional ways.  Having attending a workshop with Diana myself I have experienced first hand her skill in working very much as a ‘Guidess’ rather than a tutor.  In this way she is able to use her knowledge & experience to facilitate the unfolding of your own creative expression.  NOT TO BE MISSED !

This workshop will take place in my own small but beautifully formed home studio.  I am fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful countryside & wonderful views.  I’m hoping for a lovely warm & sunny day which will mean we can spill outside to enjoy our creativity exploration while making the most of the setting.
