PAGE WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
Hilary Page Workshops are energizing, inspiring and crammed
full of information and painting time.
They are for participants of all levels- the experienced are
challenged and beginners are shown what they need to know to get
started. Each, according to his or her skill, will attain new
heights of achievement while developing an individual vision and
style. With Hilary's encouraging way of teaching and under her
careful guidance, participants invariably emerge from the
workshops feeling renewed and refreshed.
The workshops feature short demonstrations- enough to
illustrate the topic under study, as well as some longer ones.
Generous hand outs are given to further explain the lesson.
Hilary's insightful and supportive critiques round off each
project. The workshops start promptly at the appointed time both
in the morning and afternoon and are usually for five days, though
they can be for more or less days.
