Art Social

-if you're looking for something  quirky and a fun event rather than the seroius stuff and fed up with the endless cycle of grabbing drinks or (gasp!) dinner at bars and restaurants we’ve been to dozens of times before why not give an Art Social a try?

You are Welcome to bring a bottle and nibbles along (not compulsory) 

Chill and Learn Oils.  

 This is a bespoke event and I will organise this event around your schedule and you need to be a group of no more than four. If you want the workshop elsewhere with larger numbers we can discuss. 

 Early Friday nights are good though other times are fine too.  All materials are provided and all  I need is seven days notice.  

If this works for you, please email astorerpainting@gmail.com or tel. 07866506841

GROUP TALKS

 To all Organisers of ART TALKS FOR art GROUPS, other groups AND ORGANISATIONS.

My talk on  Leonora Carrington  prolific painter and internationally celebrated member of the surrealist movement explores how Carrington established her distinctive take on surrealism against the backdrop of the Surrealist movement. 

Born to a wealthy English family and becoming one of Mexico's most celebrated artists she was a Surrealist femme enfante working alongside key members of the Surrealist movement, such as Andre Breton and Salvador Dahli.  Her love affair with Max Ernst and her paintings, filled with eccentric characters  shifting  between  animal and human objects, including a nervous breakdown make her arguably more famous for her personal life than her art..

“When I heard Allan was giving another talk to the artists group of lawyers in the Law Society I went along, having heard him speak at the St. Ives Art Festival I knew it would be just as insightful and interesting. I was not mistaken ”

I really enjoyed it and and will be back again soon. We went through some basic colour wheel blending and tips and even though I’m not a beginner it was very useful. Quirky funny teacher

Really good session, learning how to mix colours in oil paint. Allan is a good teacher with a strong sense of humour. He takes the time to speak to each individual and help them improve. The Kingston studio is light and airy. Good workspace and easy to find.

A very helpful and well organised course on the basics of colour mixing in oils, useful for both beginners and improvers. The tutor demonstrated well, and was encouraging to individual students, and the general atmosphere of the group was pleasant and friendly.

A little more of the serious stuff.

Education

Theoretical specialism: Surrealism. 

Area of interest and work is the psycho dynamic principles involved in the process of Art and Education.

Consistent with my postgraduate studies in psychology and surrealism and consequent therapeutic work in mental health and education professions, my working methodology is a faith in the artistic principle of creativity, as a fundamental coping device for healthy everyday living.
