Exploring image making: collage, mixed media and water based painting


Jill Trappler, Di Metcalf, Anthony Cawood, artists and art teachers

In this course Jill Trappler will be working with two other artists who will demonstrate different materials and approaches to image making. Working from a still life that the participant will have set up in their own studios, the first session will explore making images with collage and mixed media.

 In the second session Di Metcalf will assist participants to work with water-based inks and water colour materials on various papers. Participants can use a second still life arrangement or remain with the first set up. 

The third session with Anthony Cawood will focus on basic and essential information about different grounds and primers, mediums and applications for water based and oil-based painting. 

In the final two sessions Jill Trappler will review all work with participants. Participants will be allocated time to show their work and share observations in discussion with Di, Anthony and Jill.


This course will be offered on the Microsoft Teams platform. Participants will be sent a link.
