Description

A canvas can accommodate much more than paint alone - join us for this hands on exploration and learn to effectively use mixed media in your practice. We’ll show you how to use anything from text and photographs to organic matter and found objects - with the intent of creating exciting and textural pieces. With guidance from a professional artist, you will undertake a series of exercises examining a range of methods, as well as undertaking your own self-initiated project. You will also take a look at the history of mixed media painting and the artists who use it - including Chelsea College of Arts Alumni Chris Ofili and John Latham.

Course Outcomes
By the end of the course you will have gained confidence in using mixed media and you will have learned a number of techniques for doing so. You will also have an understanding of how mixed media painting has evolved through the 20th century and how to incorporate it into your work.

Who Should Attend
Anyone who is excited by the idea of taking a painting beyond the surface of a canvas. You may have some experience of painting or be a complete beginner.

Course Level
All levels welcome
