This is a 5 week course is designed to encourage a playful approach to creating images in mixed media, while being guided through elements of colour theory, composition and application.
In the first three weeks you will be guided by artist tutor Sarah Hunt as you explore different mark making techniques using a variety of tools and media, working from both your imagination and observational studies. You will build up a folder of resources, which you will use to develop a final piece in the last weeks inspired by an image of your choice. This can be based on a memory of a perfect day, a dream or even the Arts Centre’s historic parkland!
