Mixed Media Art Classes (July & August)

Event details

Mixed Media Art classes via Zoom

Course description: During July & August artist & tutor Stephanie Sian Coley will be running 4 more mixed media art classes. Three of them via Zoom, with the final class taking place outdoors at the Belper River Gardens, Derbyshire. All ages & abilities are welcome. Subject matter and art materials will vary throughout the course. Each week she will select a suitable photographic image to work from and will try to vary these as much as possible. Steph will 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 she’ll also share what art materials she will 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 tackle the image. Steph will film her self creating her artwork and she’ll describe her process during the class. People can then work on their own artwork while Steph is creating hers. Steph will 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

Tues 20th July

10.00 until 12.00 via Zoom

This will be a wildlife week. I’ve selected a rather lovely photo of a crow/raven/rook??? Birds are not my strong point!!! It’s a great photo, with a fair amount of detail and texture. Photos and materials info will be emailed prior to this sessions.

Week 2

Tues 27th July

10.00 until 12.00 via Zoom

This will be a figurative week. There’s a nice amount of colour and texture in the photo I’ve chosen, which should make for a nice little drawing/painting challenge. Photos and materials info will be emailed prior to this sessions. Photos and materials info will be emailed prior to this sessions.

Week 3

Tues 3rd August

10.00 until 12.00 via Zoom

This will be an abstract week, so anything goes really. Prior to this session I will email everyone a few helpful videos to watch and I’ll also find some nice images to use as inspiration for the abstract session.

Week 4

Tues 10th August

10.00 until 12.00am on location

My final summer mixed media session will happen outside at the Belper River Gardens, Derbyshire. So fingers crossed on the weather!!! Drawing/sketching on location is a very different challenge and it’s a great activity to really improve your observational drawing. It’s also a nice way to work a little quicker and to loosen up on your drawing style.

Location: This is an online art course and will be delivered via Zoom. The Zoom info & meeting link will be emailed prior to the course starting. Information regarding the Week 4 on location session will be emailed prior to the class.
