Be inspired and paint!
The autumn term will focus on using mixed media, drawing, collage and simple composition.
We start the month with printmaking and Xmas cards. You will need to get blank white or coloured blank cards (they usually come in sets with matching envelopes). Full materials is in the weekly newsletter each week. We will look at painting textures for autumn using both acrylics and watercolours.
