House for an Art Lover

24 April 2020 - 12 June 2020 (Fridays 2 - 5pm)

Wild Landscapes 

This course will involve a lot of experimentation, trying out expressive techniques, looking at colour and the application of mixed media to communicate the wild energy of nature. You will experiment with paint, collage and mono-print to create vibrant landscapes and abstractions. By the end of the block you will have translated all these explorations into some personal artworks to take away. There will also be some communal activities, creating a large landscape painting using a number of the above techniques.

Suitable for all, including beginners, improvers and more experienced participants.
