Course dates: May 15th - 17th (Monday - Wednesday)
This course is about exploring the beauty of surface by building texture and layers through the repetition of pared down marks, gestures and techniques. The inspiration for these marks could come from a drawing, a print, a small painting, a photograph or even a piece of music. Something that would inspire a movement, emotion, atmosphere or rhythm of mark making. We will also be looking at the more decorative side of surfaces using a combination of collage and paint. Exploring different processes like casting, printing, stencilling and lovely possibilities especially in conjunction with collage. The paintings created will be experimentally layered over the 3 days to create some finished samples that will inspire future work.
