During the 2 days we will work both in the studio and outdoors: first day will be spent, weather allowing outside – sketching, drawing, collaging from the landscape, otherwise we will work inside looking out at the landscape through the framework of windows, doorways etc. The second day will be spent working from the sketches to make larger work that explores a personal response to being outdoors. In the mixed media painting we will explore working in collage, pastel and water-based materials e.g. acrylic, watercolour, gouache, ink, on surfaces such as papers of different kinds, canvas, wood panels (plywood and mdf off-cuts).
* The course takes place in the beautiful Artform modern light-filled studio with 24hr access for each visiting artist, and runs from 11am to 5pm on the first day and from 10am to 4pm on the subsequent days. Cost does not include accommodation, on request Artform offers artist accommodation options. Details on art materials will be provided after signing up to the course.
