WHAT YOU WILL COVER

In this workshop, students will learn how to layer a variety of media to create a mixed media work on paper. You will discuss being spontaneous in colour choices, mark making with different art media and materials, patterns, and how to layer these to create a rich and deep artwork. We will work to layer collage materials to give depth and character to your artwork.


You can print out the ink bottle images that you will be sent the day before the workshop (see examples below). These will be used as a focal point, and the printed images can be used within the piece.


Brooke is not a fan of sending a reference picture that you will copy, although you can see below an example of of a finished piece inspired by an ink bottle. She prefers providing the process and encouraging interpretation.
