Mixed Media Art Classes – Belper, Derbyshire

Event details

Mixed Media Art class – Belper, Derbyshire

Course description: During March & April, fine artist & arts tutor Steph will be running 6 weekly mixed media art classes. All of these sessions will take place at The Strutts Centre, Belper, Derbyshire.  All ages & abilities are welcome. Subject matter and art materials will vary throughout the course. Each week Steph will select a suitable photographic image to work from and she will try to vary these as much as possible. She’ll email everyone the image prior to each class, so that people can print this out or get it displayed onto another device if possible. Each week Steph will also share what art materials she’ll be working with during the class. Again these will vary. People can then either select the same art materials as Steph, or use something entirely different. It’s often really interesting when people work on the same subject matter in a variety of different mediums.

During each class Steph will discuss the chosen image with everyone and she’ll also run through exactly how she’ll be tackling it. Steph will create her own artwork and she’ll describe her process during the class. People can then work on their own artwork while Steph is creating hers. She’ll answer any questions if anyone has any, She’ll constantly check up on everyone’s progress during the class and generally everyone has a rather relaxing few hours.

At the end of each class Steph usually posts a link on her Facebook Page for people to post their finished artwork onto. It’s always nice to see how everyone has got along and it’s also a really nice way for people to share their thoughts on everyone’s artwork.

Week 1

This will be a wildlife week. So plenty of texture, colour and character.

This will be a busy people session. Plenty of detail, perspective, scale and colour.

Week number four will incorporate a spot of nature. Not Steph’s ideal subject matter, but hey ho.

This will be a portrait session, so plenty of proportions, measuring, angles etc.


Week 6

The final session is usually an anything goes session. Something a lot more playful and experimental than the previous sessions. Something that has scope for plenty of different interpretations.
