Fodder School 1 is a year-long online mixed media art course with a different artist teaching each month, which you can join anytime. For the first half of each month, you learn mixed media techniques to make different types of fodder, which you then use in the second half of the month to create an exciting project so by the end of the year, you have 11 beautiful projects and a huge toolkit of mixed media techniques! Follow along with me on my Fodder School Journey!
This Fodder School project allowed me to finally try a seascape collage using my fodder papers! It’s been something I’ve wanted to try for ages and it did not disappoint! You could choose any kind of landscape, seascape or a photo of somewhere you love for this project so there is something for everyone!
The first half of the month was spent creating papers for our final pieces. Rebecca blew my mind with such interesting techniques to use on our Gelli plates to create beautiful textures. Because I knew what I wanted to create as my final piece, I created papers using the new techniques to represent the sea and sky of my seascape.
The second half of the month was spent creating our collaged pictures. Rebecca is a brilliant teacher, who gave easy to understand, step by step instructions on how to build up the layers of our composition. I absolutely loved creating my seascape and was thrilled with the finished product.
Rebecca’s super clear teaching and inspiring methods gave me some brilliant methods that I will definitely be using again and again! I also want to try lots more collaged landscapes and seascapes!
