Mixed Media - Collage Ink & Acrylics

Tutor: Amy Alderson
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next date: Sunday workshop, 06 May 2018

Students will be encouraged to delve into, and design their ideas through mixed media materials.

The workshop gives students the opportunity to work with a range of methods, referring to various art practices. We will research art movements and approaches such as collage/ montage, realism vs abstraction, paint practices and application.

Amy gives lots of demonstrations and assistance where required and her teaching approach will help you to work within a framework whilst still giving you the freedom to generate your own ideas and develop your art skills, techniques and designs.

Suitable for all levels.
