Course content:

Collage techniques using cardboard/paper shapes, acrylic paint and mono-printing with chinecolle technique.

 

What does Portsmouth means to you? A peninsula surrounded by water… Gosport on one side and Hayling Island on the other side? What does your personal important landmark look like? What is visually significant for you?

Whilst exploring these questions you are encouraged to draw and cut out shapes and images that seem relevant. Preparing paper with ink or acrylic paint and using collage techniques as well as painting techniques to create a personal ‘memorabilia’ of the city.
In the second half of the session you are supported to work further with your shapes and forms, using them to create a mono-print with chinecolle technique.

You are able to work on A5 sized paper, giving you the possibility to submit your work for the Tight Modern showcase.

If you wish, feel free to bring your own image material (copies of photographs or magazines, which relate to the subject questions above) to the sessions.
