Mixed Media Art Classes

Event details

Mixed Media Art class – Belper, Derbyshire

Course description: During September & October Stephanie Siân Coley 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. 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. Copies of the image will also be available at the venue 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. A small selection of art materials will be available to borrow on the day, just in case anyone hasn’t got what they need.

During each class Steph will discuss the chosen image with everyone and she’ll also run through exactly how she’ll tackle 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

Tues 7th September

10.00 until 12.00

This will be a wildlife week. I’ve selected a rather lovely head shot photo of an ostrich. The image has bags of character and plenty of texture too, which should make it a fun little image to tackle.

Week 2

Tues 14th September

10.00 until 12.00

This will be a fiddly little architecture week. A lot of detail in this photo, plus a wee bit of perspective too, which is always handy to tackle every now and again. Photos and materials info will be emailed prior to this sessions.

Week 3

Tues 21st September

10.00 until 12.00

The third session will feature some figurative drawing, so limbs, hands, feet, proportions etc. There’s also some lovely shadows and negative spaces in this week’s photo.

Week 4

Tues 28th September

10.00 until 12.00am

Week number four will incorporate a spot of nature, landscapes and trees, which is not always my preferred subject matter. As a photo this does have some lovely colour and texture, which should make some interesting artwork.

Week 5

Tues 12th October

10.00 until 12.00am

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

Week 6

Thurs 19th October

10.00 until 12.00am

My final session has people, lots of. It’s a great little photo, with figures, silhouettes, shadows and some beautiful lighting. It’s one of those photos that lends itself to many different ways of working. So hopefully people will interpret this in many different ways.
