Description: The aim of this one day taster workshop with mixed media is to give you an insight in to the many possibilities of mixed media painting.
There will be some examples of Artists materials to show you with advice on what to buy and how to use them.
In our morning activity we will be painting a tonal seascape picture and exploring transparency and depth of colour. Followed by creating our main composition of ‘pathway in the woods’ by building onto a board in relief with textural effects.
In the afternoon we will be painting our background with a wet-in-wet technique and using acrylic paints with a variety of painting implements such as a pastry brush, toothbrush and straws!
Materials: All materials will be supplied but please bring a couple of plates to use as palettes. Also, if you have any old brushes or painting implements please bring them along.
PLEASE BRING AN OLD SHIRT TO BE USED AS AN OVERALL AS ACRYLIC PAINT WILL NOT WASH OFF CLOTHES.
Tutor: Jennie Boniface
