I’m currently studying OCA Creative Arts Today. This is my third level 1 module in the creative arts degree pathway. I have already completed Drawing 1 and Painting 1. I needed to do this theoretical module as it is filling in a lot of gaps in my knowledge of the wider art world but I couldn’t help feeling some regret that I did not get the chance to do Printmaking 1.
Fortunately I’ve found a very good weekly printmaking class at The Wilson Marriage Centre in Colchester and I’m loving it. I had very little printmaking experience so it’s learning all the way as we work through the various techniques. It’s a great class with good tutor and a lovely group of like-minded, aspirational students so I’m happy.
Here are some of my experiments from the first three weeks:
More complex hedgerow detail and experiments with tonal backgrounds. I will return to this theme and experiment more. There is lots I can do with this. It’s a development of some abstract explorations during Painting 1.
