Jo Sheppard is an artist living and working in Quorn, Leicestershire. Although she works mostly in oils she likes to experiment with a range of media and materials in her works, creating a broad and varied portfolio. She has been teaching art for 20 years and runs several adult ed classes and delivers various workshops to schools.
Aims of the course - This fast paced workshop is suitable for those confident using acrylics and interested in broadening their mark making repertoire. Participants will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of additives and explorative techniques, which will then be applied to a semi abstracted landscape. For this workshop it is presumed you will have your own paints and supports.
Please make sure you have plenty of paper- such as strong cartridge (lining paperwall paper- is good but it does have a tendency to curl). You will need lots of paper to experiment on- A3 minimum would be great, and if you could prime some with gesso or emulsion that would be even better.
After the experimenting mark making session you will need an appropriate support for a painting, such as a canvas, board or simply stretched/primed paper. Please do go as big as you dare- those of who are familiar with the medium and are confident to complete the piece at home, work as big you can. If you are newer to acrylics, you may wish to work between A3 and A2.
