Paint and Paper | acrylic, gouache, collage and more with Renata Pari-Lewis

Course overview

Break out of your old habits and explore the possibilities of collage painting. This is an energetic worksho with Sydney based artist Renata Pari-Lewis. Students can expect to gain from Renata’s expressive style that combines drawing and painting with acrylics, gouache and collage. Let go of preconceived ideas of what’s right or wrong. Trust your intuition. Play and test things out, working from collected and prepared materials, scraps of found materials, or recycle your old work. Use coffee or tea as paint, fingers, twigs or cotton buds as your paint brush and strive to stay loose. Use spills and smudges to add character to your creations.

What to expect

Through a series of mini projects, you will explore different ways of using collage, combine it with drawing and painting, working on several pieces simultaneously. Working intuitively, the goal is to spend less time ‘thinking’ and more time doing!
