TREASURES AND IMPRESSIONS

JAN GARDNER RCA

NEW WORKSHOP COMING SOON!

 £65 includes all materials

 

Treasures and Impressions workshop:

This workshop will encompass introduction and development of a range of effects with mixed media on paper, to create an expressive piece of work in colour.

 

The morning session:

In the morning we will start by drawing from observation, from natural forms, found objects, material, and or own objects. From these studies we will develop ideas in resist and colour. We will develop a coloured ground using these techniques.

 

After lunch

In the afternoon we will prepare collage surfaces, using mark-making with a variety of tools. This will develop our imaginations and flow of ideas to transfer processes into a piece/pieces for development. It will essentially be a celebration piece.

 

Students/participants are welcome to bring precious/special objects of their choice to incorporate into the piece, though I will have reference for folk to experiment with. Individual guidance is part of the session plus ideas shared with each other, students are encouraged to bring sketch-books too!

MY HEART'S DESIRE

Mixed Media Workshop

In this workshop we will explore and develop the inspirational word and emotion ‘love’ whether it be personal, love of flowers, life, animals, hearts and symbols, poems, letters of love can be starting points for inspiration.

 

Please bring anything you would like to use for your own starting points. The essence of the way I work is to enable you to identify and celebrate your own unique voice with the use of a variety of tools and media.

 

Using mono-prints, monotypes , pen and ink , watercolour and collage we will create cards in the morning and develop ideas onto a larger piece on water colour paper. Exploration of media, mark-making and individual ideas will be encouraged.

 

Always good to bring your own brushes and tools, crayons etc  and selected colours paint, ink and acrylics with 'Love' theme in mind. A variety of papers, textured, coloured and own ideas and inspiration welcome. I will supply mono-printing beds and printing inks etc.
