Responding to the Shropshire landscape, this course will encourage you to explore the surface and physical presence of a painting.
You will use acrylic paint, various acrylic mediums, charcoal, pencils, sandpaper and wire wool on artist panels and heavy paper. Through intuitive play, you will be encouraged to use layers of colour, texture, engraved, carved and eroded marks in your painting.
Take creative risks, have fun, reflect and feel your painting and its presence in the world through your body as well as your eyes.
