Art works created by Val Shaw/mixed media artist, sculptor, researcher and educationalist:

If you want to develop drawing skills and broaden your knowledge of graphic media this is an ideal class for beginners and intermediate level artists. We explore not only the values of line, tone and texture in traditional pencil work, but also work in pastel, pen, mixed media and mono printing. We have interesting discussions on art making processes and the development of different ideas and methods of application. As well as working from set themes such as still life and portraiture, artists are encouraged to develop independence of thought and  work with ideas/ images of their choice, supported by ongoing help/ guidance.


“I believe that creating art is a great vehicle for self- expression, a personal journey of creative exploration, an area that activates our sense of aesthetics and imagination but can also deliver strong messages relating to social, political, environmental issues and other areas of concern. Art is an extension of self, and this class helps to develop not only technical skills but the development of a uniquely personal approach to the art making process.”

Explore and develop your own personal skills, concepts and preferences.
