Concertina books – Mixed media Drawing and painting.

Concertina books are easy to make and can be used as an integral part of your artwork or as a great way to display small images, perhaps exploring a particular subject or medium, or even telling a story.

Day 1  We’ll start the course by looking at examples of artist’s book and how they can be constructed. Then we’ll try some mixed media experiments using paint, coloured pencil, oil pastel and ink, and use these as the basis for images for your book. There will be a collection of small objects, natural and man-made, to provide inspiration if required (please feel free to bring something to add to this if you wish).

Day 2  Working at your own pace, we’ll continue with yesterday’s work or you can choose your own subject and/or medium for a second book.

Vicki Street

I have been teaching drawing/painting in the Harrogate and Knaresborough area for more years than I care to remember (!) – mainly in the adult learning sector, and for many years with Rossett Adult Learning. I have a BA in Fine Art and a post-graduate teaching qualification.
In my own art practice I work mainly with acrylics and mixed media. I am a great believer in drawing from life if possible (and my own photographs if not) and I am currently obsessed with winter trees and hedgerows observed whilst walking locally.
