Taught by: Estelle Vincent.
Using the photographic image as a starting point, you will examine different techniques of combining mixed media and explore the creative possibilities they offer. You will be able to experiment on your own imagery with photomontage, collage, weaving, embroidery, hole-punching and acrylic paint.
Within a structured but experimental environment, you will discover new possibilities to develop your art practice and gain the confidence to develop and express ideas creatively while expanding your understanding of historic and contemporary art. A comprehensive hand-out, with tips and examples will accompany each process that will help you continue using these techniques after the course.
You will acquire knowledge and understanding of the themes, ideas and practices associated with hands-on manipulations, increase your confidence in experimentation with a range of techniques and materials, and create a selection of images using these techniques in works of your own personal style.
Who Should Attend
Photographers, artists, students and anyone looking to enrich their making practice through hands-on techniques combining photography and mixed media. No previous experience is needed in this area, only an enthusiasm and an open mind to working with creative manipulations.
