Marvellous Monochrome! Mixed Media Arts Workshop with Claire Beattie – Art’N About in Gala
FREE EVENT! A fantastic opportunity to get drawing and printmaking with local artist Claire Beattie.
Hosted by Transform Arts CIC.
As the seasons change and we prepare for the clocks going back come along to a fun drawing session inspired by the autumn season.
Using a variety of unexpected drawing and printmaking materials we will focus on looking and creating images with light and dark tones.
Suitable for all levels of ability – and beginners most welcome. The focus will be on process and enjoying a bit of creative time.
Age 16 + (or age 14+ with an accompanying adult)
Carers welcome, only book a place for the accompanying adult only if they are also taking part in the workshop, which is welcomed, otherwise just come along to support.
All materials provided.
Teas and coffees will be available free. There will be a lunch break- you can bring your own lunch or there are shops available nearby to purchase refreshments.
You are welcome to book in to a maximum of three of our adults workshops as part of this program. This is because places are limited and we hope for as many people as possible to benefit.
Coming up we also have, collage, mosaic making, printmaking, music and film workshops as well.
Please wear oldish clothes just in case it gets a bit messy!
The workshop is part of Art’N’About in Gala a community arts programme funded by Energise Galashiels Trust, Scottish Borders Council and South of Scotland Enterprise.

More about your tutor Claire Beattie:
As a visual artist I have shown my paintings professionally throughout the UK since 2008. My work, inspired by the landscape and responding to ideas of a centre point and focus is in many private collections in the UK and worldwide.
A solitary motif such as a single tree is a recurrent theme alongside strong horizontal areas suggesting a more abstract visual language.
My work has been shown several times at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute. I am a member of the Society of Scottish Artists and Visual Arts Scotland.
Alongside my painting I work collaboratively with groups of people of all ages and abilities in lots of different settings to creatively explore and to communicate ideas that are important to them. This has involved projects with National Galleries of Scotland, Marchmont Makers Foundation, Health in Mind, Museums Northumberland, Live Borders Museums and Galleries, National Museum of Scotland and HMP Northumberland.
