Painting Landscape in acrylic and collage

Ref: C3680199

Express pattern, texture and movement by experimenting with a range of techniques including monotype and printing to make your own collage sheets. Use your collage sheets in combination with painting to make lively pictures and enable you to test new ideas without risking ruining what you have already done. You will also make use of traditional skills such as exploratory drawing, colour mixing and observing and manipulating tonal values. Taking inspiration from the other students and sharing ideas and experience is a valuable part of the course.

Course aim

Combine collage with painting to add a new dimension to your landscape compositions.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • Students work at their own level. Beginners should not give up if the course seems to move too fast for them. Artists are always exploring and never completely understand what they are doing! The other students are always encouraging and supportive.

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • apply acrylic paint in a variety of ways to express texture and movement
  • identify underlying forms and superficial patterns in a landscape subject
  • use collage to experiment with composition apply acrylic paint in a variety of ways to express texture and movement use collage to experiment with composition
