A one-day workshop observing the colourfully clothed figure in mixed media. Students will initially work with coloured paper collages, investigating ways of building tension in a composition by working on small studies and observing the subject.

Working with a human form in space, students will learn about improvisation within a framework. The workshop will encourage students to consider the aesthetics involved in making a painting, manipulating pictorial elements to find the ‘pulsation’ of a work of art. Understanding and reflection on earlier small-scale studies will be harnessed by students within a final, larger mixed media painting. Artists including Cezanne, De Kooning, Hockney and Catherine Kehoe will be looked at as guiding lights.
