Painting the Everyday  - January - Online

Online Course January 26th-28th (Tuesday – Thursday) 2021

Painting the Everyday uses the everyday objects we all have around the house as source material for painting. This three day online course is a celebration of drawing and painting familiar everyday objects in the setting of your own home. We will take these familiar and often overlooked household objects and, through a process of dynamic and energetic drawing and bold improvisations in paint, reclaim them as subject matter for painting.

The course will aim to give a fresh view of the ordinary. We will consider how being bold and energetic in your drawing maintains a freshness of vision. We will seek a confident and free approach to the subject, and find ways of working that express the excitement of observation.

We will consider the arrangement of the objects, how decisions in organising, moving and overlapping them and adjusting your viewpoint, can be recorded and reflected in the build up of the drawn and painted surface.

Although based on household objects, the lessons learnt need not be restricted to still life and could easily be applied to any aspect of painting.
