Expressive Figure Painting From Photographs

Course Dates: October 28 -30 2019 (Monday - Wednesday)

This 3 day practical painting course will explore combining the dramatic potential of the photographic image with the expressive qualities of paint. It’s hard to draw a falling body directly but since Muybridge and his ground breaking photographic studies of the body in motion artists have made use of still and moving image photography to push the boundaries of figure painting.  The course will cover image selection, cropping, editing and composition, gestural drawing, physical paint handling and the expressive potential of colour.   Students will be able to explore a broad range of ideas and approaches, and to produce a large body of experimental painting, which will provide an exciting resource for personal development.

Reworking Abandoned Paintings

 Course dates: November 1, 2019 (Friday)

It’s time to stop flogging a dead horse, time to dust off those paintings that you felt would never work; those paintings that take up space and took up time. We will look at ways of reviving, bringing back to life and successfully resolving these works. Bring a selection of paintings that are frustrating you and we’ll see what we can do. Mind you, there’s always the odd one that needs putting down.

Autumn Trees and Landscape

4th - 8th November 2019 (Monday - Friday)

The price includes entrance to Sheffield Park.

Sheffield Park near Uckfield will be our inspiration for paintings. Famous for its beautiful Autumn colour; with its Acers, Nyssa, Taxodiums and Ginko trees. The reflections in the large lake double the impact and make the experience all the more magical. The course will start with 2 days working on location in the gardens making rich and exciting studies of the colour, textures and spaces; capturing all that is wonderful about working on location. The final 3 days will be back at the studio in Partridge Green making paintings from these studies.

The Painting Group  - Term 1

Course Dates October 14th & 15th, November 11th & 12th, December 9th &10th 2019

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

This monthly course provides help and support for experienced painters to become confident in establishing and sustaining a good regular working practise and a flow with their work. Both Emily and Julian focus on ways of inspiring a creative energy by giving talks, creating helpful exercises, giving demonstrations and one to one tutorials. Working as a group and individually each artist is helped to put more intensity and content into the work. Artists are given strategies to prevent hesitation, being stuck or bored. Artists need to bring their own subject, studies and on going work to each session. Being part of a group of like minded artists, and attending this course regularly over the year, will help each artist produce a strong and significant body of work, build confidence, independence and trust in their own creative abilities and intuition.

The Creative Painting Space - Term 1

Course Dates November 13th - 15th ( Wednesday - Friday ) 2019

Choose which sessions in the year you would like to come. Booking ahead is essential to secure your place.

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. 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. Three consecutive days gives the space and time to really see progress and to get absorbed in your work.
