28/29th JANUARY 2017 MONOPRINTING AND COLLAGE - £128 This is very popular course is for those who want to make exciting new discoveries about the diverse flexibilities of monoprinting and what can be achieved. Students will be experimenting with making 'prepared collaging papers' to help create colours and textures for their own unique peices of work. Students will be working from a series of still life objects and imagined backgrounds as a starting point, using artists such as Mary Fedden for inspriation, with collage and bringing it all together with monoprinting.
4/5 MARCH 2017 EDGES, CONNECTIONS AND OVERLAPS - £115 Taking inspiration from artists such as Morandi and Ben Nicholson and working from large arrangements of still life objects, students will be exploring composition and the interesting relationship between shapes, positive and negative shapes and 'lost edges', connections and overlaps of shapes. All these 'ways of seeing' can be applied to any future work to great effect. Students may develop representational or abstract works.
23/24 SEPTEMBER - GESTURAL DRAWING AND PAINTING FROM THE MODEL - £138.00 This will be an amazing opportunity for students to explore the gestural movements of the models who are experienced in dance and movement, at times moving to music, costumed and uncostumed to make intuitive and animated drawings and paintings that are more about the 'essence' of the model that anatomical accuracy. Inspriation for this very exciting course will be drawn from Rodin and his Moroccan dancers and other artists.
