Using a mixed media approach you will explore the environment, gathering information. You will be drawing things of interest, recording the rhythms, textures and colours of the river, and bringing them together to form a final piece.
This will involve a mix of skills including different drawing methods, frottage, collage and colour work.
This will be more than a quick snapshot, but a reflection of your day.
We will provide drawing boards, paper, some mixed media materials, chairs and tables. You should bring scissors, Pritt stick, a graphite stick/pastel, drawing pencils, and as varied a collection of ‘art gear’ as you can think of carrying, and think could possibly be useful (think holiday packing – too many tee shirts, but you never know what you might you need) This is not helpful but don’t worry; bring what you can, and a certain invention will fill the gaps. A good online store to try is Cass Art.
This workshop would be appropriate for all abilities.
