Collage - Mixed Media Sketchbooks



This 'Collage' course tesselates with my other technique based courses, 'Print' and 'Draw' to show you how to build a vibrant, exploratory mixed-media sketchbook.

Through videos, text and stills I show you the different ways that I use collage. You will be encouraged to try different tasks so that you can begin to experiment and find ways to enhance your own practice with the delights of collage!

What's included in the price?

If you love bold shape and mixed-media this course is for you!

If you enjoy sketchbook play, then this course is for you!

If you want to work bolder and more intuitively then this course is for you!

My sketchbooks are a meeting place for texture, mark, drawings and pattern, usually inspired by nature. I love to build the pages with these different elements.

In this online class I will show you the different ways I use collage in my sketchbooks. It's a joyful and satisfying way to add colour and texture to your sketchbooks. I will help you build your creative confidence. If you've lost your creative rhythm, I will guide you through ideas that you can use in your creative development work.

You will end the course with inspiration and techniques for building layers of drawing, pattern and adding collage to enhance and enliven your sketchbook pages.
