Working Large in the Landscape

Course dates: June 25th & 26th 2018 (Monday & Tuesday)

Cost includes canvas and paper

We will be working outside in the woods and landscape close to the studio; making paintings and drawings on large pieces of canvas and paper. We can get immersed in the tranquillity of being surrounded by nature. By working large on the ground the marks made will have an inspiring physicality and energy. You will respond to fleeting moments and changing light; walking on and round your work to get the full 360 degree experience. The work will be brought back into the studio to look at and potentially develop. It can then be either taken back into to the landscape or fresh work can be started. The practicalities will all be sorted for you!

Summer School 2018

Course Dates: July 2nd - 6th 2018 ( Monday - Friday )

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.

Painting from Nature – The Algarve Portugal

Dates: August 26th - September 1st 2018 ( Sunday to Saturday)

This includes arrival and departure dates. The course runs from August 27th - 31st Monday - Friday

This course offers the opportunity of five days painting in the stunning location of the Algarve. Whilst staying in a beautiful villa, situated right on the boundary of a National Park, you will get inspiration for paintings in response to the surrounding secluded beaches with their views of the sea, landscape, rocky hillsides crammed and carpeted with wild herbs and flowers. The local landscape is studded with exotic trees and plants. Emily's guidance will focus on helping students to become more confident and fluent with their handling of paint in order to create paintings that capture the experience of the place and the intensity of sensations. Emily will provide warm up exercises to help students navigate how to make studies and then use these to inspire finished paintings.

All art materials, food and accommodation are included in the fee, but not flights. If students wish to have a single room there will be a supplement to pay of £175 for the week. This is an option in the checkout.
