Abstract Pattern Collages: Mindful Drawing and Intuitive Collage for Self-care
In this workshop, students will combine mindful drawing and intuitive collage to promote a sense of calm and connecting with ourselves, in this present moment through pressure-free creative play.
You will explore colour and its impact on our wellbeing using coloured paper and drawing materials to approach some guided mindful pattern drawing techniques. You will then explore how different compositional styles can elicit particular moods and feelings as we compose our final series of abstract pattern collages for you to take away from the workshop.
This workshop is for everyone, whatever your skill or experience level – you don't need drawing skills or previous experience with mindfulness to benefit from this session.
Mel’s work incorporates texture and layering within her mixed media work through the use of combining drawing, collage, paper cutting, and digital applications. Focusing on humour, her work invokes playfulness, silliness and the unexpected which has aided in Mel’s teaching roles at Central Saint Martins, Ravensbourne, and numerous workshops.
