The four ‘one day’ sessions spent in the studio once a month will benefit those unable to study for a whole week. During the four months we will explore the many aspects of constructing a painting from drawing and planning to colour mixing and application. Our subject matter will change each session. We will use still life, flowers and the landscape to experiment with watercolour, charcoal, pastel and oil and research methods and approaches to painting using the substantial collection of art books in the studio.
At the end of each day we will discuss the homework, an integral aspect of the course; homework will encourage drawing to be a more constant and continuous activity reflecting everyday life and objects. A sketch book will be provided for this.
The day will begin at 9.30 with a break at 11.00. At 11.30 we will work until lunch at 1.00pm (which is not provided) and begin the afternoon session at 2.00pm until 5.30 with a pause for tea.
The Studio is equipped with easels, stools, boards, palettes, paint, brushes and paper. Although students are welcome to bring their own materials for safety reasons the amount of personal items is kept to a minimum in the working space. Overalls/aprons are recommended as are boots and a warm coat for working outside, whatever the season. A pad/book is helpful for taking notes.
