What does this workshop cover?

From time to time we all need to find new ways to refresh our artwork. Using your sketchbook as a laboratory might help you do just that. In this workshop Bern O'Donoghue will help participants to develop a sketchbook full of experimental mixed media techniques. You'll collaborate on and respond to other group members’ ideas and pick up lots of practical tips in a fun, positive environment.

I really enoyed learning the different techniques and using different mediums.  I've never used charcoal before so that was a nice change.  Wendy is a fantastic teacher and takes her time to explain everything to you - thank you.  Lyndsey

I really enjoyed this course - 10 weeks went too fast.  One of the things I liked was experimenting with different material, like charcoal and trying life drawing that I've never done before.  Fiamette

Bern is fantastic.  Knowledgeable and patient & always positive.  Classes were relaxing, like a little holiday each week.  Neil
