Course Dates: June 28th  - June 30th  2017 (Wednesday - Friday)

Explore and discover how to make abstract work using a wide range of materials and techniques. The materials will be the starting point for the work. Flooding the canvas, glazing, drawing into thick paint and plaster, dissolving paint and coloured pigments are some of the processes that will be explored. Also using the chance factor, together with colour, line, form, including patterns and shapes, to inspire us to intuitively make very exciting paintings. The course will evolve and new elements will be added as part of the process. There will be demonstrations by the tutor and we will be looking at artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Gillian Ayres, Alexis Harding, Tapies, Yves Klein, Julian Schnabel, Frank Stella and more.

‘Helen's course was fantastic, I learnt a great many techniques and enjoyed her direct approach’.

‘I've gone back to college refreshed and ready to accept what may feel uncomfortable in my work - tutors have already noticed a change in my mark making and use of colour’.

Course Dates: July 1st - 5th 2017 ( Saturday - Wednesday )

Week 1 - We will be making paintings inspired by the Cuckmere Haven Valley, over looking the sea and the Seven Sisters. For the first two days we will be based at the Coastguards Cottage. From there we will work in the surrounding landscape making lots of studies. For the final three days of the course we will be based in the Studio at Partridge Green, where you will make paintings from the studies and your memory of the experience. During the five days there will be space for experimentation, risk taking and development of work that goes beyond trying to copy what you see and instead becomes a much more expressive and personal response.

This is an opportunity to give a sustained commitment and studio time to your work and yourself over 5 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. Limited to 5 artists, on application.
