Colour Theory & Expression

Art Workshop – 7th July





In the Amanda Aldous Gallery in the fabulous surroundings of Newlyns Farm Shop

Catherine Ingleby will take you through the essential components of colour theory, how to embrace it and enhance your own work. We will look at the work of the various artists hanging in the gallery, discuss their palettes and the handling of colours, contrasts and tone. The workshop will be held in the airy studio upstairs, and using supplied reference images you will apply what you have studied to your own work, and every student will hopefully produce at least one finished piece by the end of the session.

Please bring sketching materials and a preferred colour medium, no oils please! Easels are not really required, but you may bring one if you prefer to work standing.

10 -1pm (with a break for coffee!)


You may also book directly in the gallery, or by contacting Amanda on or call the gallery on 01256 674444




I frequently lecture in local schools and colleges. I have a series of lectures institutions can select from, largely geared towards the upper end of school, college students and art groups.

‘Business for Artists’

The topics covered include:


‘Progressing an idea from concept to completion’

This lecture takes students through the process of developing an idea from a given concept to a complete work. This is aimed towards helping students develop a structured process to evolve their ideas beyond copying to creating their own, original work. I also cover the basics of copyright and using reference material.

‘A career in the arts’

The purpose of this lecture is to inspire those that may be considering a career in the arts and to give them a chance to question me as to the pros and cons of working in the art world. The career paths within the art world are many, varied and often very rewarding, both personally and financially, but sadly are often overlooked in favour of more traditional professions.
