Both beginners and the more experienced will certainly be able to have fun and gain from this course.
The term Mixed Media covers a number of techniques, using mediums or materials employed for various styles of image making. Whether simply mixing wet & dry mediums within a drawn image, or perhaps introducing collage, or assemblage using found objects.
This 5 weeks course will introduce you to the fundamentals. We will experiment with different approaches, via short “sketch studies”. Ultimately, you will choose a technique/style that appeals most to you, and develop this more deeply, working towards producing a finished piece.
The intention is for your imagination to be sparked, and take away some exciting ideas that you can incorporate into your own works going forwards.
Materials are supplied, but should you develop an interest in using found objects or printed images of personal interest to you, after the first week you will be encouraged to find and bring these to class.
