Painting: Developing Practice

Monday - Friday 10.00am – 4.00pm, £350
9 - 13 April 2018 / 5 days

This course is aimed at students who are interested in working from their own ideas and preparatory material. It would suit students with a broad range of experience, the main criteria being that they come with ideas from which to work. Students will be encouraged to develop their own practical and aesthetic interests by setting up an individual studio-based enquiry from the first day. There will be the option of joining a series of morning workshops that aim to explore strategies used by painters to develop work, or for students to work from their own motivation. The course works essentially as a space for developing ideas and personal practise, led by close tutorial support, as distinct from structured teaching. Slide shows of tutors' work (which represents a wide spectrum of professional practice in terms of style and subject matter) and group critiques supplement the studio work.

Who should take this course?

This course suits students with a broad range of experience, the main criteria being that they come with ideas from which to work. It is also suitable for students who have learnt first principles on the autumn/spring term courses in Drawing or Painting, or for those who have studied elsewhere.

Materials

You will need to bring the following materials for the first session:
Sketches, photographs and visual resource material of any kind that will aid discussion about your ideas for new work as well as your personal painting kit.

Easels, drawing boards and paper will be provided.

N.B. You will receive a more detailed materials list once your booking has been confirmed.
