Daytime and Evening Expressive and Creative Art Courses
This course will get you out to some of the many free contemporary art exhibitions in London, with alternate weeks in the studio developing your own art projects. These need not be directly inspired by what you see, but informed by a broader understanding of the contemporary context.
Mixed media is all about exploring discovering and experimenting with media, techniques and materials beyond the traditional paint and pencil (although we use them as well). Taking inspiration from contemporary artists and practitioners you will learn how to be more expressive with media and processes to develop a range of interesting and innovative 2D art work. Themes are suggested but you can also work from your own personal inspiration.
Using your imagination as your guide and taking inspiration from artists like Chagall, Nolde, Peter Doig, you will be invited to produce images and forms inspired by your own mind.
In the class we will experiment with various 2D and 3D techniques that can be used to really allow your expressive self to emerge in visual form.
You will have the opportunity to work individually and collaboratively from a variety of starting points, ranging from music to meditation.
