An opportunity to create a body of mixed media work by trying new approaches and engaging with different ways of drawing.
The first three days will each take a different approach to drawing, encouraging students to develop their own personal language and to push their work in exciting new directions. Day one will explore lively, mixed media drawing from the moving image; Day two will provide the opportunity to draw at the National Gallery as a way of engaging more deeply with works of art; and on Day three, students will draw from their surroundings with a day working outdoors. We will consider how to use sketchbooks, tone, and colour, and a variety of mixed media processes will be introduced. Back in the studio, we will reflect on each of the practices that have been explored, collate our findings and discover patterns in our work that inform a body of resolved mixed media work.
