Mixed Media Art

Mixed Media Art

This is a course for everyone. No artistic training is required. You will learn how to connect with and develop your own creative process and express that through using a combination of materials, both 2D and 3D. You will become  comfortable and confident using a large variety of art materials and have fun combining them with each other to produce exciting artwork. Everybody has the capacity to enjoy working with art materials and this course will connect you with the sense of fulfilment you can access in a relaxed and supportive environment, from engaging with your own artmaking process.

You will learn how to connect with your creative ideas and experience different materials to bring them to life. Play and experimentation will be a big part of this process. We will discover how various media work together to produce  finished pieces.

Over the course you will connect with your inner maker and become confident expressing yourself through art materials to produce something unique to you.
