This FREE course for autistic adults will cover various approaches to drawing and painting and using mixed media. Through a structured but experimental approach – and by using a variety of found, traditional and contemporary art materials you will develop your skills for experimenting and gaining the confidence to develop and express own ideas creatively. The topics will include basics of drawing, painting, collage and mixed media whilst mediums explored will be charcoal, pastels, watercolours, acrylics and collage. Wider materials may include inks, bleach, tissue/tracing paper, glue, old newspapers and magazines and so on. Through practical exercises you will gain the confidence of using individual mediums as well as combined.

This 5 week course will run on the following dates:

  • Friday 9th June 10am – 1pm

This course is part of project so there is no cost involved, however before you enrol, you will need to take part in an advice session, where we will discuss the courses and you need to fill in a mood and wellbeing questionnaire.  We will also need you to sign a written consent (so that we can use the information you provide us through the questionnaire for research). The survey will be repeated on several occasions during the course.
