Printmaking & Mixed Media with Cat McDonald
16/03/2023 @ 11:00 am - 18/05/2023 @ 3:00 pm
My workshops will explore print making, ceramics, textiles, mixed media and found
objects. The themes I would be using are, “the senses” what senses can be drawn in detail to produce artwork. Some people like smooth lines and shiny surfaces. Some prefer lumpy surfaces and shaded or mottled areas. Another theme would be the environment, where I would introduce found objects and recycled materials to allow participants to draw their own inspiration in creating new artworks. Additionally, I will encourage participants to work on a large collaboration of art that can be exhibited as one. I will also be using ink, rollers, and block printing from lino cut sheets. We will explore the use of different cutting and marking tools. I will also be conscious of working in non-mainstream settings where communication can be problematic, so visual communication can help to get ideas across, most people work best as a group enabling them to bounce off each other with their ideas which is healthy and interesting.
