This five-week Saturday course will help you expand on your core drawing skills and compose paintings.
You'll learn practical strategies for translating your ideas and imagery into painted compositions.
The course takes place on five consecutive Saturdays, from 10am to 4pm.
This course is run by the Slade School of Fine Art at UCL.
You'll start by exploring some of the formal issues of drawing through observation, looking carefully at objects and their qualities.
You'll then learn how to turn these drawings into paintings by:
- translating from tone and line into colour, from one surface and scale to another
- using secondary sources
- organising the pictorial space
You'll also learn how to use and re-think ideas sourced from your own preparatory material, such as sketches, photographic documentation, objects and text.
Who this course is for
This course is suitable for beginners, or those who are more experienced but would like to re-engage with the first principles of painting.
It's also suitable for those who attended the Slade drawing or painting courses in the autumn term and want to develop work from their own ideas.
You can request an attendance certificate after completing the course. These can only be supplied during the year you take the course and can't be produced retrospectively.
The course fee is £390.
This fee covers tuition, provision of an easel, drawing board and paper.
Once you've been accepted onto the course, you'll be sent details of which materials will be provided and which you'll need to supply yourself.
