More Experimental Mixed Media
Sat, 10 Feb 18
9.30 - 3.30
£27 (Institute members), £32 (non-members) Includes coffee and sandwich lunch.
Another workshop introducing more drawing and painting methods. You need not have attended a previous workshop - if you have, you can build on your experience.
You will explore a wide range of media, working on diverse surfaces to create images with very different characteristics.
Learn how to refine and enhance your skills, and how to exploit the potential and limitations of all kinds of materials. You will be using a wide variety of techniques for drawing and painting and expand your understanding of the materials as you modify, combine and refine methods. Demonstrations and prepared examples will introduce the methods and media and open tasks will help you explore your own picture making using conventional and unexpected materials to create distinctive pictures.
Suitable for all ability levels. A materials list is available and some specialist materials will be provided and included in the cost, with a small stock for further purchase if you wish.
Life Drawing Day

Open to any level of experience, this practical study day with a professional life model will include some demonstration and discussion of techniques, principles and approach using appropriate examples from art history.
“…things that can be gained from the practice are personal visual language, composition and spatial awareness. As humans it is only natural that depicting our form should play an important role as subject matter.” (St Ives Drawing School)
Please bring your preferred art materials, paper and drawing board. Some materials and papers will be available for purchase from the tutor on the day.
