We tried out the idea of running our own 'day workshops'. 
Ian and Judy organised a workshop on painting abstracts based on some of the exercises in Rolina Van Vliet's books on abstract painting. 
We restricted it to 8 participants and repeated.
The following gallery gives a flavour of the outcomes from each of two groups completing the same 3 exercises.
