Mixed media & Collage

Collage & Mixed Media Courses in London

Collage is an exciting, accessible and creative medium. Experiment with a rich variety of materials to make vibrant work exploring surface, form, colour and pattern, and be inspired by artists who make effective use of this way of working.

We offer a range of Mixed Media and Collage courses from 1 day sessions for beginners through to more intensive courses such as Contemporary collage projects, for students who want to experiment with their art practice. These Mixed Media courses explore and combine a variety of collage techniques using found images, drawing, painting and paper to create unexpectedly beautiful or powerful images.

Our courses are taught by professional contemporary artists who bring their wealth of experience and their specialist knowledge to enrich the student experience and to put the subject into a historical and contemporary context.

At City Lit, you can choose to study in-person or online. Our fantastic in-person courses are taught in our attractive campus, located in the heart of Covent Garden, central London. Here, our students can benefit from a variety of services and resources, including our café and state-of-the art equipment.
