A Mixed Media Collage Workshop

 “Autumn Wanderings”

Skies blush of pink and blue

Birds sing a chorus

Haze of smoke on the horizon

and a cool breeze from the South.

Workshop will include Observations of positive and negative spaces, minimal colour palettes and the macro and micro viewpoints. We will take time to explore Natures magical patterns and Seasonal vibrations.

Rosie’s workshop will include drawing and painting techniques inspired from observing shells, local flora and artists such as Georgia Okeefe and Hilma of Klimt. The workshop will begin with quick drawing exercises on paper, loose paint application creating surfaces for collages and the finishes with a work on canvas to take home.

Rosie will talk about “The happy accident” with art making, viewing space and objects from different viewpoints to create interest, colour palettes, line and taking individual art work on its own journey into the unknown.
