Still Life

This course and the work produced grows and unfolds over 3 terms. Inspired by the exhibition 'Matisse in his Studio' at the RA in 2017 and the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A (June - November 2018) both showing the personal belongings that appear in their paintings, we invite students to bring their own objects to the studio. The objects that we have in our home are often symbols of our own personal history - a souvenir, a family heirloom, a postcard, or simply an abandoned coffee mug....each object tells a story.

Still Life - A personal Life History - Term 1

Course Dates Sept 27th, Oct 18th, Nov 15th, Dec 13th 2018

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

You will make a body of work (both drawings and paintings) from your objects paying special attention fabrics and objects with sumptuous colour, pattern, texture, as well as personal association. Using different approaches to get to know the subject (through touch, writing and memory as well as visually) we will explore the subject beyond the traditional still life. The work produced will be autobiographical, a personal story, a self portrait using objects that mean something to you, or that have metaphorical relevance to your life and loves. Meeting monthly means that Katie and Emily will ask you to do preparation work for each session. The work you do in your own time will be used to inspire paintings and drawings during the class. You will be encouraged to get into the the routine of a daily practice, even if it is just 10 minutes drawing a day.
