Contemporary Drawing and Painting Courses
TIME FOR INSPIRATION
As artists, taking focused time to reflect on our work and re-balance our creative energies, is essential and here at Seawhite Studio we have some inspirational opportunities for you to do just that! This Autumn as part of our exciting new programme, we are offering Seawhite Studio residencies and a week's course, painting the stunning Autumn landscape of Sheffield Park, on location and in the studio.
Residency in September 2018
I have been fortunate to do a number of residencies over the last twenty years. Each one has its own unique experience given by the location, the studio space and the other artists (if any others are involved). You may have a week or two, perhaps longer doing a residency. Essentially the common thread is the valuable, unbroken stretch of time where you are only doing your own work, with no distractions.
Each day you go to work with the sole objective of spending time looking at your work and finding out your creative rhythm. In that time it is possible to recognise how the work needs to move forward and immediately work it out in the painting and drawings. This experience is not a luxury......it is an investment and recharges your creative batteries; giving you more confidence, clarity and independence.
At the Seawhite Studio we are offering two consecutive weeks of Residency Space.
There is lots of wall and floor space so you can spread out and work generously and ambitiously. We have run these weeks very successfully over the past couple of years and everyone who comes has found them to be very supportive, inspiring and productive. If you normally only have time to paint on the odd day of the week, squeezed in between the rest of life, then this could give you a wonderful space to find out what it is like to dedicate more time to yourself and your work. The studio is fantastically well equipped and the wonderful Seawhite Art Shop is within walking distance from the studio.
Each week's residency takes 5 students only, so click on one of the 2 course title below to register now for this exciting opportunity:
Residency Week 1. 3rd - 7th September
Residency Week 2. 10th - 14th September
If this has got you thinking about the whole idea then there are residencies available all over the world. http://www.resartis.org/en Some offer remote locations where you can enjoy solitude and time to work and study. Others are an opportunity to collaborate with others, share experience and be inspired by a creative community. The financial arrangements for them also vary hugely. If there is a selection process it could be that you are provided the space and accommodation for free and you just have to get there. Other residencies you pay a subsidised rent for the space and find your own way there. Wonderful adventures for you and your painting!
Autumn Trees and Landscape
For more Autumn inspiration, Emily Ball and Katie Sollohub team up to teach a week of working amongst the glowing Autumn Colours at Sheffield Park. This is a National Trust garden, in East Sussex, filled with mature trees, woodland walks designed around a huge lake that doubles the impact of the colours and shapes with its beautiful reflections. Two days gathering studies in the gardens will be followed by three days in the Seawhite Studio in Partridge Green making paintings from the experience.
