Courses - Emily Ball @ Seawhite

These contemporary painting courses offered by Emily Ball studios have been running for 20 years. Emily Ball and her colleagues specialise in teaching painting and drawing. A wide variety of artists attend the courses and they all share a passion for art and their desire to be more adventurous and innovative.

This is an opportunity to give a sustained commitment and studio time to your work and yourself over five days. It will be untutored however you will be working alongside a professional artist and selected fellow artists who are equally committed and focused. You could choose to use the space and time to make large scale work or focus on an existing body of work. With group critiques at the end of each day this combined working energy and support, in a spacious well equipped studio, will let you see your work take leaps forward and your confidence in your practice will grow.

Tutor Katie Sollohub

A series of stand alone workshops tutored by Katie Sollohub, or they could be seen as a chance to build a project around observation of the figure. If you book all 5 of Katie's sessions you get a £50 discount on the total cost. These workshops are more than your average portrait or life drawing class, these sessions will keep you (and sometimes the model) on your toes - taking a line for a walk, multi views, sculpting the form, drawing with your eyes shut, the moving figure - and other exercises. Whether working in charcoal or paint, the emphasis will be on keeping an image lively and expressive, capturing a sense of the pose, a glance, a particular turn of the head. You will be given exercises and ways of looking, to encourage an experimental approach to a timeless subject. Working from long and short poses, making the most of the amazing models we have the pleasure to work with.
