This two day workshop is for people who have had some experience of painting and would like to experiment and explore abstract ideas further in their work.
Colour, Collage and Texture in Abstract Painting follows on from the introduction to abstract painting session. It is a an expressive workshop about releasing creativity by experimenting and learning techniques of mixing media. We will make collage papers, look at techniques with acrylic paint, use wax resist, draw with sticks, splatter and dribble paint. Building on ideas from the first workshop we will look in more depth at using colour, collage and texture to create interest in abstract compositions. Over the two days of this course you will:
- Make your own papers for collaging
- Experiment with different techniques including scumbling, splattering, painting with fingers, cloths and sticks.
- Use pastel, ink and pen
Who is this course for?
- Beginners new to mixed media
- People who would like to learn how to loosen up and become more expressive in their painting
- Anyone who would like to quieten their inner critic.
A full and detailed booklet of all of the exercises and information from the two days are included for each attendee.
