In this 5+ hour workshop from Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, we learn to look — becoming aware of what attracts us, record — collecting ideas for later development, and finally draw — developing what we saw and recorded into finished drawings and illustrations. We explore many techniques including drawing, painting, collage and making marks. As Jan and Jean love to say — “the more you look, the more you see”.

Jan and Jean demystify the challenges of choosing materials: Which paper? Pencils? Paint? Glue? What other media should I use? They show you how to mix and use colors. Several exercises are suggested to grow your skills, encourage you to experiment and expand your thinking, developing your personal pathways.

As ever, their style is gentle, fun, and full of inspiration and guidance. An ideal workshop for those nervous about drawing and recording and for those who want help in seeing and then designing in all sorts of art forms.  Everything from mixed media to perspective and location drawing to collage are covered in this fun and inspiring workshop.

Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn have more than 30 years teaching experience to a global audience of stitch and mixed media enthusiasts.  Together they are known as Double Trouble
