This course provides a wonderful opportunity for you to further your drawing and painting abilities and enhance your creative process. Guided by experienced tutor and artist, Joel Sydenham, you will

  • improve your technique
  • gain confidence in your abilities
  • develop your own creative style
  • create artwork you love and are truly proud of
  • enhance your portfolio

During this Thursday evening mixed media short course you have the opportunity to make art in your own style and continue exploring mixed media techniques. Or you may decide to learn to work in a completely new medium. You’ll spend about half the time working on subjects of your own choosing and the rest of the time working on study pieces that will help improve your technical skills.

Joel has incorporated lots of practical exercises, tips and advice in the course but keeps the sessions relaxed so the two hours fly by. You are supported individually by the tutor and will receive regular feedback and demonstrations that could help you improve your own specific style, or create more dynamic work. You also get the benefit of developing your skills in the company of like minded people and draw inspiration from each other.

  • Paint
  • A3 & A4 Mixed Media paper
  • Sketching paper
  • Collage material
  • Palettes
  • Supplementary materials like coloured pencils, markers, erasers and rulers
