Art Doll Class (Mixed Media) /Autumn Art School

by Grum Frith
Art Doll Class (Mixed Media) /Autumn Art School

Create a character from your imagination which celebrates an aspect of your personality, a wish, an experience or a dream. I will demonstrate several mixed media techniques and we will discuss how these can be used to bring your doll into being. This is a wonderful class to use precious scraps, hoarded treasures and oddments of ephemera. There will be lots of ideas about giving your doll its own character. Dolls may be made entirely by hand, or using a machine for part of it. You may choose to use paint, thread, collage, stitch or combinations. Relax and listen t0 your inner voice

Drawing the Figure in Context /Autumn Art School

by Grum Frith
Drawing the Figure in Context /Autumn Art School

Have you ever noticed that most landscape paintings (and even cityscapes) are devoid of figures?  Would you like the confidence to place figures into your paintings?  In this class we will work with a clothed model, in the context of the room and, if weather permits, even attempt some sketching of random passers-by on the streets of Hanmer.
