A Mixed Media Bird Collage Workshop with Emily Lawlor

Saturday 22 June, 10 – 4 pm

This one day workshop gives students the opportunity to be inspired by the surrounding gardens and wildlife. During this workshop you will learn techniques for building a collage illustration beginning with a line drawing and adding elements such as magazines, newspapers and acrylic paint. You will take home your framed finished artwork of your chosen bird.

This workshop does not require advanced drawing skills – it is an opportunity to experiment with texture, form and colour. You will have advice on composition, exploring options for creating texture and adding different media. Participants can bring a bird image to work from or use reference materials and images provided by the artist as a starting point for their drawing.
