A 2-day workshop exploring the possibilities of 'NARRATIVE' in painting.

Narrative art is art that tells a story: something happening, happened or about to happen…

Figures invariably create a narrative but so can an empty room or chair, an open door, something hidden or disguised…‘narrative’ can be autobiographical, magical, historical, psychological, ‘narrative’ can be sourced in an alternate narrative: books, music, film…‘Narrative’ can also be the conversation or relationship between different elements in a painting…

"Ashley's concern as an artist and teacher, is to unleash the emotional response to the subject matter that enables the painter to take risks, discover a 'personal colour palette that excites' and to provide the fresh vision of Britain's natural beauty that places him within the long tradition set by the masters of the landscape genre." Dr. Sally Bulgin, Editor, ‘The Artist’ magazine, February 2013
