Plaster relief with Sarah Gillham

Sarah Gillham will show you how to make a plaster relief of an impression of found objects (Sarah used handprints, wildflowers and Captain America!). This process involves using a clay mould to take the impression. You can stop at this point or continue to make a plaster iteration. This is a fun process which you can do with a child, it’s a bit like making a cake!

Art drawing from within

Drawing from within

Drawing from within with Mindy Lee

Drawing from within, is a freeing, loosening up, subjective drawing exercise. It is especially good if you have artists block. This exercise will allow you to simply draw without worrying about finding a likeness to something. Surreal imagery will appear later on through suggested forms. There is a great freedom to change your mind throughout the whole of this lesson.  Your drawing will end differently each time you do the class.

Object Repeat with Mindy Lee

Object Repeat with Mindy Lee

Thinking and making through repeat investigations into the same object. This is a great way to find your subject and try out different elements of an object without getting too precious about your artworks. Investigate different ways to depict such as shade, tone, pattern, form, colour and movement. Enjoy happy accidents and then look at how you have made your image in relation to the thoughts you first had about it.
