Mixed Media & Printing Holiday in Portugal
The Mixed Media & Printmaking course explores a diverse range of materials and methods. Mixed Media explores the use of different materials and textures. Collage provides a delightful way to experiment with combinations of colour and surface. Incorporating text gives an added dimension and opportunity to play with words and meanings. Layers of texture, paint and 3-dimensional objects may be incorporated. For many people, this brings freedom from striving for an exact representation, and from the constraints of drawing. Results can include a creative journal or ‘travelogue’ as well as mounted pieces of work, and are often quirky or personal.
In printmaking we use some simple printing techniques such as monoprint. Exploring the variety of marks and giving room for the element of chance that comes with printing methods. Celebrating the freedom and creativity of these methods.
