Join abstract printmaker and mixed media artist Jess Levine on this six-week course, exploring a wide variety of media and techniques to come away with your very own body of artistic work.

Each session will bring to life a range of materials and processes, drawing on references to landscape, urban landscape, still life and figurative elements and how these can be described in an abstract style. The course will cover:

  • geli plate printing

  • monoprint

  • abstracted drawing

  • mixed media

  • acrylic painting

  • collage


Suitable for both beginners and those with some experience, creative areas of focus will include:

  • colour theory and mixing

  • texture

  • composition

  • design

  • selecting and editing images

  • working in a series

  • using text

  • painterly use of acrylic

  • how each media can inform the use of other materials

 

Tuition will include brief demonstrations to familiarise students with materials and techniques, and visual resources including books and videos as useful starting points for discussion and independent practice. Each session will have a flexible structure with plenty of time to develop working ideas, be spontaneous and expressive, and the chance to share your work, offering praise and feedback for your fellow course-mates.
