Sketching and Painting on Paper and Clay
2-day Creative Course with artists Melanie Chadwick and Pippa Alston
Sketching, layering, painting on paper and clay.
This Spring, join illustrator and sketchbook artist Melanie Chadwick and painter and potter Pippa Alston for a 2-day immersive, creative course at Lowenek Art Studio, St Martin on the Lizard Peninsula.
Day One Mel will introduce you to her sketchbook practice and the range of mediums she uses to capture her subjects. You’ll spend part of the day experimenting with a range of mediums, understanding how they work and can be used to blend and layer and create inspiring textural sketches.
You’ll then spend time outside drawing from the landscape, using the mediums you were introduced to and by the end of the day have a variety of sketches that you’ll be able to use as inspiration for the next day.
On Day Two Pippa will introduce you to her work and the range of techniques you can use to create depth and texture on clay. She will be guiding you through stencil making, and how to translate the texture you’ve sketched into clay. You’ll then choose to either make a set of 6 tiles or a dish which will have your final design on. Pieces will then be glazed and fired and will be available to pickup or can be sent to you for an additional cost to cover the postage and packaging.
Both Mel and Pippa are excited to present this fun and experimental course, combining their different areas of expertise and practice to enable you to create something truly unique.
