Mythical Illustration with Collette J. Ellis

Portffolio: Artist-led masterclass for 14-18 year olds
24 June 2017, 11:00am to 5:00pm

For this workshop there will be randomly generated monster/mythical drawing exercises, thumbnailing composition, watercolour technique training and the development of a finished painting, based on the creatures and folklore of Wales, China and beyond!

Collette has a Masters in Design Communication and has travelled to China to investigate dragon legends. This has inspired exhibitions at conventions, three gallery solo shows and successfully launched two books about welsh mythology and her sketchbook work via Kickstarter. Collette’s enthusiasm is contagious, and by the end of this workshop, you’ll have fallen in love with dragons too!

£12.50 per workshop or £50 for five workshops (contact us for info on forthcoming workshops).

All materials are provided and are included in the cost.

What is Portffolio?
MOSTYN’S Portffolio programme is part of Criw Celf, an Arts Council Wales funded initiative for young people with a passion for the visual arts. Aimed at students in Conwy aged between 14 and 18, the programme sets out to nurture and support more able and talented students.

Experienced artists from a range of disciplines will share their work and help you develop your skills in exploring materials and techniques you may not have used before. There will be opportunities for you to discuss your work and develop your personal portfolio.
