This workshop will explore the magic of mixing materials & methods. Mixed media combines drawing, painting, collage, stamping, printmaking & text. It’s a great way to practise your visual art principles like balance, movement, pattern & contrast. Kids will begin with a drawing & will learn how to use techniques like negative space, sighting, identifying basic shapes to lay in their drawing. After sketching the main image we will create a background using a range of materials & methods including layering & design elements to create the finished piece. We will use materials that you have at home, pencils, old papers or catalogues, crayons, ink, food colouring, coffee or tea to add some colour if you don’t have paint or ink, stamps, glue & scissors , skewers, & cotton tips to use as alternatives to brushes. So lets get creative!!
