This is a short course that you can do quite easily. In it I show you how to make two abstract landscape inspired pictures from recycled paper, paint, ink and old frames.
I usually spend a lot of time in Suffolk, in the countryside, on the beach, but now, because of the Covid-19 virus I have to stay in my home in Hertfordshire. So I made some art to take me to my happy place in my studio even if I can’t go in person.
Why not take a look and create your own abstract collage that takes you to your happy place, wherever that might be.
Who is this for?
This course is for absolute beginners and more experienced artists who would like to try something different.
You don’t need to have any experience and relatively few materials to get started. The important thing is you show up, chill out and take time to loose yourself in being creative.
Making art is fun and relaxing, let me show you how easy it can be to create some beautiful pictures. Join me in this soothing class and unlock the creativity inside you that’s just waiting to break free.
