Course Outline

In this 8 week course you will learn a variety of fun, easy beginner artistic practices to make yourself an A5 booklet with samples of various styles of art practices. Using the teacher’s tools, you do not need to invest anything further to learn some basic ways you can begin to enjoy an art practice without buying in any supplies. Veronica is a keen up-cycler and will show you how to use what you have at home and ways you can incorporate some simple techniques for starting an art journey. We begin with a faux leather cover sample booklet, folding papers to create signatures for the book and templates ready for binding. We will create a simple 6 page booklet ready for all your art samples to be placed for your reference. Each week we build knowledge by delving into a beginner class of the following mini-classes:- 1. Faux Leather Cover making and basis of our sample booklet. Folding our pages and learning about signatures and binding styles. 2. Watercolour fun exercises and samples using techniques for texture. We create some fun small backgrounds and textures for the following classes. 3. Zentangle ® as a way to draw simple, easy and fun repetitive patterns to create corners, borders or embellished letters for journalling. 4. Mono-printing using a gell plate and brayer with nature and understanding acrylic paint. 5. Texture week where we use a variety of mediums and ways to create 3D texture and patterns. 6. Pastels and layering chalk and oil pastels to create a stunning sunset silhouette using your own photos or Veronica’s reference art/photography. 7. Collage play and learning about composition and layers. Creating frottage with nature and patterns. We have fun with 2D texture in collage and journaling. 8. Glazes, varnishing and finishing off your artworks. Each week Veronica will be teaching you not to be afraid of any medium and to start with what you have at home to inspire you and your art journey.
