Beppy Art Scottish Landscapes

Beppy Art Scottish Landscapes

Friday 26 March - Friday 9 April
All Day

From fields and pylons to pubs and shops, Scotland is full of amazing and serene views. And ‘Scottish Landscapes’ brings them together. This exhibition details features moody, rain-filled skies and urban landscapes inspired by the architectural beauty that surrounds us every day. Scotland’s buildings are full of character and it’s not until you stop to look at them that you really take it in. Despite our signature grey skies, there is always a brightness to Scottish landscapes and a flash of colour to be found.

Whenever I create something, I want to capture loads of character. My work is influenced by impressionism and Japanese art styles. Inks and paints feature a lot in my work because of their brilliant vibrant colours and their deep blacks – and I find working with ink over paint is a lovely way to capture detail. Scottish buildings and streets provide a lot inspiration for my work and I love the gothic and Victorian architecture of our big cities. I’ve recently moved into more traditional landscape work but will always enjoy looking at how man-made structures fit with natural backgrounds.

Mindful Dotty Art for Wellbeing - online

At this online class, there’s no dress code, bad hair is appreciated and those hankering for connection welcomed.
This is a drop in, running in 3 week blocks. The same link will let you join for any date, come when you please. Duration 1.15hrs. By donation

So what is Dotty Art?
It’s all about relaxing, feeling good and enjoying yourself. It’s a gentle mindful practice that helps relieve worries, stress and anxiety, aiding feelings of wellbeing. Dot mark making to create images is a primitive art form (probably fingers dots), that’s deeply rooted in tribal cultures across the world from Europe to Australia to Africa and still used today

What will I do at this class?
After settling and making sure everyone is ok with the technology, you’ll be gently guided in an easy 5 minute meditation, this helps set the mood; to give yourself the space to turn off your busy mind, let go and connect with your inner creative genius. Yes, you do have one! You don’t need to be artistic, it’s all about getting into flow and we reckon you’ll be delighted with your creations.
The idea is not to think too much, it’s not about the outcome, it unfolds as you walkabout. Just take one step and see where it takes you. Choose your favourite colours and let the journey unfold as you lose yourself in the moment.
We’ll explore colour and making shapes, dots and patterns. We will spend some time at the beginning with instruction and discussion then quieten until we share our efforts near the end (not compulsory).

Why take this class?
We welcome you and offer you a safe place for nurturing your intuitive process, this is both healing and beautiful.
You will leave with a new skills for relaxation, an uplifting sense of achievement, a quietened mind and an astonishing piece of upcycled art.
You don’t need much to start with; something to dot on, a smooth stone, tin can, jar, wooden bowls, shell, offcuts of wood or card will do fine; some sort of medium like acrylic paint, poster paint, emulsion, paint pens, sharpies or felt pens; and tools for the paint like toothpicks, cotton buds, chop sticks, nail art tools or a pencil.
