Mixed Media Winter 2017

Building on the mixed media course from last summer I wanted to encourage students to explore a wider range of collage materials and mark-making opportunities, in order to produce some individual and experimental interpretations of their ideas.

I introduced them to the work of a number of mixed media artists, notably Mike Bernard and Robert Kushner, whose styles are very different, and asked them to work 'in the style of' any of their chosen artists in order to develop an idea of structure and layering.

The main focus of this course was to inspire students to experiment and explore ideas.

The results are very varied and students have gained a lot of confidence in their approach to interpreting subjects.
