Painting and Personal Inspiration

Studio based

 

 

What the world looks like' is an aspect of all artists work. As the world changes with time it is both necessary and exciting for another generation to get involved in producing images. This course is designed for those who are just beginning or who have had some experience but need to refresh their creative approach. The course will introduce you to the creation of paintings inspired by everyday personal experience and the way your imagination plays a part in recreating these perceptions. A wide range of  subjects and approaches will appear in various projects throughout the course. You will explore still life, interiors, the figure, and the city through drawing and painting supported by your own research through photography, note-taking and found images and objects. Together with Guy you will look at certain artists that have relevance to the projects you are engaged in so that you become familiar with the language of painting. Situations or images that have caught your eye will be the starting point for all the projects. Transforming this encounter into a finished painting will work alongside gaining knowledge of both materials and art history.

"A picture is something that requires as much trickery, malice, and vice as the perpetration of crime, so create falsity and add a touch from nature." Degas

Drawing is one of the most exciting, rewarding and primitive activities known to man. 
We can all draw.  
The aim of this course is to demystify the process of drawing. Designed for total beginners and those who would like to refresh their understanding of drawing, it seeks to equip the student with a working knowledge of a range of basic practical and conceptual skills. Materials, methods, composition, space, form, the subject, the object and the figure will all be covered. 
This fast paced course will consist entirely of practical studio work. Instead of boring slide shows, the students will break occasionally to see slides of artist's drawings that are relevant to the work they are doing. This not only helps them understand how they can improve but also brings to life the work of great artists..

Contemporary Drawing and Painting

LIVE online course but will be available as a studio based course :

 

 

How you build on your knowledge and talent in a constructive and inspirational way can be a daunting task. This course is designed for those who have some experience of painting and drawing, and aims to help you take the next step with confidence, suitable for enthusiastic part-timers and those who have completed short courses or even art school training.We will look at 3 aspects of contemporary painting and drawing:

1. Subject Matter (What we paint) Contemporary art presents a spectacular array of subjects but this does’t mean that any one subject will be interesting to you. So what makes a good subject for you?  

2. Imagination & Observation (How we see things)Whether it is painting directly from life, photographs or from memory, imagination and observation are at the root of our aesthetic responses.

3. Technique & Language (The way we work)Colour, light, space and form are the essential pillars of the language used in painting. Being able to control these elements technically will help you express the above. The close relationship between Drawing and Painting for many contemporary artists can show a way to further develop ones own work.
