The Painting Group  - Term 2

Course Dates January 7th & 8th, February 4th & 5th, March 4th & 5th 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

Course Dates January 9th - 11th ( 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.

Still Life - A personal Life History - Term 2

Course Dates January 17th, Feb 14th, March 28th 2019

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.
