Happy Mondays, Workshop

Create your own mixed media artwork inspired by the birdlife in and around campus.

***For Loughborough University students only***

Create your own mixed media artwork inspired by the bird life in and around campus. You will develop a layered artwork using paint, wax pastel, oil pastel and collage onto paper or cardboard using nature magazines and books. Add natural objects to your piece or create unique rubbings using soft pastel and charcoal. All materials will be provided but if you'd like to bring your own natural objects collected on campus then please do so.  No experience necessary.

About the workshop leader

Lucy Stevens is a sound and visual artist whose work explores our relationship with the natural environment. She draws inspiration from ornithology and colour theory. She is also an amateur birdwatcher. Her projects often include working in collaboration with experts in the natural world including scientists, museum curators, ornithologists, photographers and musicians. Her work interprets birdsong, museum collections and conservation data into mixed media abstract portraits on paper and sound works developed from gathering field recordings.
