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 Coronavirus 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.
Share your work and get feedback
Once you are enrolled on the course you will get access to a dedicated closed Facebook Group. In the group you can share your work for comments and feedback by myself and other people on the course. It's like being a part of an art community, I hope you will find this support encouraging and invaluable.
Making art can be fun and fulfilling
I created this course at a time when most of the world is feeling stressed and under pressure due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. I find making collages particularly relaxing. I can get lost in creating the papers and endlessly arranging them. There is no set way to work, no picture to follow, you can interpret the theme however you want to; that's what makes it fun, there is no right or wrong here. The course includes a suggested materials list. All you need to do is pull together your materials, pour yourself a glass of something or make a nice cup of tea and watch the videos. You can can stop and start them as you wish and watch them over and over again.
You will be joining artists from around the world and creating art in a unique and exciting way from the comfort of your own home or studio.
