Magnified & Magnificent – Stockingford Community Centre
This free 5-week course uses observations of the nature around us coupled with learning different art techniques to help support your mental health. To really understand the beauty of the world around us and what our garden or local outdoor space has to offer us, we need to really LOOK at and into our environment. To go beyond the instant colour, shape and texture and to examine closely our microscopic world through magnified eyes. Using fine line pen and wash, graphite sticks and rubbers, charcoal, felt tips, biros, mono printing and found materials as drawing tools and drawing mediums we will create a series of enlarged images of overlooked and unseen nature.
The course is suitable for adults of any ability, including those who have little or no experience of making art. The sessions will be in a small group and will be outside as much as possible, with time outside exploring the nearby natural environment and creating art outside (but with a warm and dry indoor space for making art as required). All materials will be provided by Escape Arts. Participants will create their own magnificent artworks to keep. To book contact [email protected]
