The Bloomsbury group were all about creativity, embracing your own expression and having fun while creating. The natural elements played a big part of their lives and art. Spend a day in Virginia Woolfs garden, taking a break from productivity and everyday life to enjoy- and be inspired by the surroundings and the botanical elements in the garden. Throughout the day we explore line and colour to find our strengths and individual expression. In the morning experiment with simple croquis techniques using pencil and charcoal and after lunch play with color and exploring different expressions and coloring techniques.
