Mixed Media with Catherine Parker

Think Like an Artist & Create with Intent

Medium: Mixed media
Skill: Intermediate to advanced
Materials: $150*

One simple idea can spur a million…one experimental mark can lead to several; one intention can seal the practice; just one idea can lead to a coherent body of work to take you beyond mere dabbling.

Create a body of work that is thematically based according to your personal research and life experience, yet approached from an initial experimental and intuitive space. It’s a very fine balance between head and heart.

Problem solving and risk taking are important components as well as the ability to accept mistakes and work with these as ‘enablers’. Feel the excitement that comes when a few ideas (often intuitively sourced based on your inherent interests) that help to change your life and open windows to your artistic freedom.

The workshop is suitable for intermediate to advanced as well as senior secondary and tertiary students.
