Concertina Sketch Book by Alison G Saunders

Concertina sketchbook classes.   

I have now run several concertina sketchbook classes and they have been such great fun. In this class you will work with paint, ink, pens, pencils and collage to produce a number of pages using either a particular theme or making the Zen-Doddle shapes you can see in my work below. You do not need to bring anything along to this class apart from your enthusiasm, as I will provide everything, but if you have magazines you would like to cut up then please feel free to bring them along.

For the Painting and Drawing classes

You would start by looking at line, tone, texture perspective and proportions. Moving into products, we would look at using graphite, charcoal, watercolour, oil, acrylic and chalk pastel and, within all of that, cover still life, portraiture, self-portraits and landscapes. In addition, I would introduce you to using ink, working from a photograph, working with collage and working in the style of other famous artists.

The point of all of this is to help you find the medium and subject which you feel most comfortable with, but also to push you out of your comfort zone so that you can discover things about yourself and your art, which you didn’t know that you could achieve.

Printmaking

If printmaking is something you feel you would like to try, then there are a few different types of printmaking which I offer. Mono-printing, Collagraphs, Screen Printing, Lino printing and the more advanced Reduction Lino Printing.
