We now offer such a wide selection of art workshops; our acrylic painting workshops can be themed on master artists or topics such as botanicals or Landscapes in which you'll learn real painting techniques and be educated from a teacher that has dedicated her life to learning about art.
Our eastern themed workshops include Chinese painting, Japanese Painting and Sumi-e painting where we make extra efforts to source the right high quality materials allowing you to access workshops that are by not easy to find elsewhere.
Our UV painting workshops are something of our own design, we have been experimenting with UV painting workshops in Manchester since 2018 and have garnered knowledge of the best techniques to use under black light to achieve the best effects from the neon colours. We have 12 UV lights and the infrastructure to set them up in almost any setting.
Not to be mistaken with the common 'Sip & Paint' events; floating Art are a small independent business, we've been holding painting events & art workshops in Central Manchester and Liverpool for almost five years now and this year we are beginning to host Art classes in Leeds too.
Our workshops combine both fun and learning, We're passionate about you having absolute freedom over your creativity. We guide you from a blank canvas and teach you the required techniques to allow you to create something of your own making. We are not to be confused with other pop up workshops where you paint identikit paintings and don't learn techniques but follow somebody else's paint by numbers.
We are dedicated to increasing the public's entry into the art field, learning from different artists and art movements from different cultures, from east to west, ancient to contemporary, developing unique ideas through the conversation with ones inner-self, and integrating art with life. We have various affordable art classes that allow everyone to learn art in a relaxing and pleasurable atmosphere, you might have all the equipment at home already but half of the battle is finding the motivation to get them out of the cupboard, our workshops allow you to get over that barrier and our teacher will help you with any mental blockages that might need removing!
Whether you are an artist or art student that wants to improve your techniques and enrich your knowledge, or you are an art beginner who is trying to find your way to start your art practice, or even you just want to try something new apart from day to day life, our classes will definitely be a great choice for you.
We offer a wide selection of workshops and although we repeat them, no two workshops are the same. This is because we also explore a variety of topics and techniques.
