Kara Strachanís Workshops

Karaís acrylic workshops run throughout the year in Kara Strachanís ground floor Studio Gallery at Curborough Countryside Centre, in a lovely rural setting on the outskirts of Lichfield, WS13 8ES.

The aim of Karaís workshops is to encourage those who are beginners and to guide those who already have skills and want to explore new techniques with acrylic paint, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

One artistís quality canvas or board and the use of an upright easel per person is provided for each workshop, unless otherwise stated. Step by step demonstration will take place throughout the day and critique and guidance will be provided.

Tea, coffee and huge slices of homemade cake will be provided for ĎElevensesí, essential for creativity.
