These evening mixed media workshops provide 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

We’ve designed these workshops so that you have the opportunity to make art in your own style, as well as explore mixed media techniques or even learn to work in a completely new medium. You will be supported individually by the tutor and receive regular feedback and demonstrations that could help you improve your own specific style, or create more dynamic work.

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.

The workshops have lots of practical exercises, tips and advice; but the two hour sessions are relaxed. 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

You will need to supply the following materials for this course:
