Printmaking classes are in Screen Printing, Lino or Collagraph printing.  See below for explanation of each process. General art classes are in Drawing skills and are using Pencil, Charcoal, Pastel, Watercolour, Oils or Acrylics. Further classes in acrylics pours and working with resin can be arranged from time to time. I will provide you with a list of basic items you will need to bring for the class and I will provide certain materials too.

I am currently engaged to deliver 2 courses of three, three-hour classes in Collagraph print making which people can sign up with Sutton Library Service to join the classes.

If you would like more information about these classes, please email me at alison@alisongsaunders.art and I will send you the signup links.

Concertina Sketch Book by Alison G Saunders

New for Autumn 2018, concertina sketchbook classes.   

I have received several inquiries about me teaching a class using concertina sketchbooks. 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.
