Painting - Term 3

The course dates are April 23rd & 24th, May 21st & 22nd, June 18th & 19th 2018.

On this course you will learn never to be stuck or bored with your work. These negative feelings come from knowing that the work you are doing tells you nothing that you do not already know about your subject or the possibilities of the language of paint. Holding back for fear of making a mess and having nothing to show for your time is a common problem. This monthly course provides support for experienced painters who work for periods of time alone in their own studios. You will need to bring your own subject, studies and ongoing work to each session. The tutor will provide positive input, exercises, guidance and lead discussions into what is happening during the creative process of painting.

By registering here you are booking for all the weeks in the term.

These sessions are designed for artists who need encouragement and support to become more confident and self-motivated with their painting. Artists bring their own subject and the tutor helps them to unpack, research and create their own personal practice, in order to help their work evolve and for them to see the creative possibilities more clearly. As part of the course the tutors also do talks showing the work of other artists, as well as inviting visiting artists to show their working processes. We explore using new materials and tools to play with to refresh and add to what you are doing. In conjunction with this we create practical, creative exercises to unpack the process of painting. Each student is given individual critiques and tuition as well as benefiting from working with a group of like minded artists. Two consecutive days gives the space and time to really see progress and to get absorbed in your work.

 Life Drawing

Course Dates: 2nd May 2018 (Wednesday)

The tradition of drawing the nude figure is an age old one. These sessions will breathe new life into it. From a series of quick dynamic poses, you will be making fast, fresh drawings, inspired by the energy of the model. With longer poses, the experiments with materials will be more challenging, to get you to think beyond the normal constraints, beyond the outline, in order to keep the drawings fresh. Working blind, charcoal on sticks, drawing with ink, to name but a few alternative approaches.

Drawing the Head

Course Dates: 4th May 2018 (Friday)

Using charcoal as the primary medium, from both short and long poses, you will be encouraged to look differently and experiment with marks and materials, in order to explore the head as a form. Charcoal is so immediate and tactile, The studies that emerge will be very direct responses to observing the head, whether by taking a line for a walk or sculpting form out of charcoal dust. Almost as if you were able to touch the model’s head as you draw, but just with your eyes.
