Tutor – Dom McIvor

This  two day course will explore using mixed media processes to consider the roads to abstraction by painting life.

Throughout the weekend we will work on just one piece of paper will introduce and invite in new materials to draw and paint with.

Building and removing materials, while working from a Still Life set up, will allow you to consider ways in which to begin to consider the possibilites of Abstraction.  The resultant work will hold all the history of its making,  within its surface.

This workshop will not only broaden drawing and painting material knowledge, it will also encourage participants to not be precious with every drawing, and to use each mark and decision to drive new ideas.

We will study the artists both historic and contemporary and consider their dogged drive to find meaning in their works.  Their physical approach and their openness to new ways of creating imagery will inform our work.
