Starts: Thursday January 21st for 5 weeks
(All dates will include Jan 21, 28 – Feb 11, 18, & 25)
Location: Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham
For this block we will take a look at acrylic & mixed media techniques for:
a) representing ice / water
b) reflective, refracted and shiny surfaces
c) texture, pattern and design
The idea behind this block is to have fun and explore creating either a realistic, semi-abstract or abstract piece of work representing the “Essence of Spring” using acrylic paints, mediums, pastes and gels combined with some stencils collage and other ephemera. Other dry or wet media may also be combined e.g. pastels, charcoal, inks etc to produce different marks or patterns (depending on your painting).
Bring with you any sketches or pictures you would like to use as reference for your paintings, also any items you may want to use as collage for texture or pattern.
Wk 3-5 – Develop further layers, add further marks & effects, refine and adjust composition to finish stages.
If desired you can also work on more than one piece at a time as some mediums take a while to dry.
Fee is £12.50 per week pay as you go or £67.50 to book the full 5 weeks.
Free parking, coffee & tea provided.
