The Creative Mix is an ideal way to explore a variety of artistic methods. Over the five days, students will work through various exercises in drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking. This is a great ‘taster’ course and an excellent opportunity to both develop skills and get creative with your own ideas.

What level is this course?

This course is suitable for all levels. Students can move at their own pace depending on their experience, with as much support from the Tutor as they wish.

  • Beginner

    Choose a Beginners course if you are looking for a broad introduction to the medium you are studying. Students spend time learning the very basics of the taught medium, for example, how to mix colours, use different tools, set up an easel. Our Beginner courses are suitable for students with no prior experience, they tend to follow a more structured path than our other courses, ensuring each student receives the guidance they need from the tutor.

  • Beginner +

    Choose a Beginner + course if you are looking to hone your skills, focus on a specific subject area and build your confidence. These courses are suitable for those with some basic skills in and knowledge of the taught medium, but still follow a structured path with guidance from the tutor.

  • Intermediate

    Our Intermediate courses are suitable for students who have considerable prior knowledge of the taught medium or have completed a Beginners/Beginners + course with the Art Academy.

    These courses tend to be less structured and instead are tailored to the classes’ needs and the direction they want to advance in. Choose an Intermediate course if you are looking to improve your skills and have more critical discussions around the work you produce.

  • Advanced

    Choose our Advanced courses if you have considerable knowledge in the taught medium. You are expected to be able to work independently and have critical discussions around your work.

     Our Advanced courses include our Masterclasses.

All attendees must be aged 18 or over.

What should I bring?

All materials are supplied for this course. Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, or bring an apron.

About Your Tutor

LYNNE ABRAHAMSON

She did the Diploma at The Art Academy, where she qualified in 2011 with a first. During her time at the Academy, she began to use ceramics and textiles and this is what she specialises in now in her art practice. Her work is based on her experiences as a mother and she focuses on themes such as separation, loss and change related to the various stages in her life. Her work is quirky and she aims to deal with serious issues in a light hearted way. She has taken part in the Craft fair at Hatfield House, has exhibited in the Menier Chocolate Factory and has works in private collections. She was winner of the Wolfendale Prize for natural forms. Lynne is currently working on a number of projects; internal landscapes using thread as her medium and a project about children’s drawings. She teaches on the Diploma and Foundation Courses at the Academy.
