CUT OUT & COMPOSITION
This two-day workshop is open to all levels of experience and explores the joys of combining mixed media painting and drawing with cut-outs and collage. Ideal for those interested in pattern, repetition, colour and composition, and for those who have a love of paper and textile design.
Introducing some simple stencilling techniques along with a range of experimental painting and drawing methods, we'll create a fully resolved work on board that makes use of both found and made cut-outs. Learn how to develop and expand your initial ideas. Learn the importance of placement and composition and the art of visual storytelling. Helping broaden your existing practice or prompting you to begin one, this short course will reinvigorate your creativity producing some unexpected, exciting and often dynamic results.
Students are requested to bring along any unwanted 'found' papers they may have e.g. wallpapers, road maps, dress patterns, wrapping paper, old books. A scalpel and small cutting board will also be useful.
