Illustration workshop - Mixed media with Sarah van Dongen

Screen Shot 2019-09-06 at 14.57.48.png

In this workshop you will learn how to make illustrations using multiple media. We will start with a base layer of gouache and you can then choose to use colored pencils, crayons, markers and/or brush pens. After a few exercises we will work on one illustration from sketch to finished piece. 

Sarah will show you how to make and use textures, patterns, and colors to create a coherent illustration.

This workshop is about having fun and not thinking about ‘’right’’ or ‘’wrong’’. Sarah will show her way of working and have examples from other artists as well, making sure everyone leaves with enough inspiration to explore mixed media further at home. 

Sarah is a freelance illustrator from Rotterdam. After studying literature she decided to change directions and did an MA in children’s book illustration in Cambridge. She loves drawing plants and gardens as well as everyday life.
