This course is for anyone interested in appreciating great paintings from a practicing artist's point of view. Each morning students will meet in a major London gallery (the National Gallery, the Tate etc.) and draw from a particular painting. You will then be able to apply what we discovered and discussed and translate it into studio work in the afternoon session.
In the studio, we will look at the ways in which what you've learned from the great paintings can be put into practice within a real life set up. For example, a Rubens or a Picasso figure drawn in the morning will be 'recreated' in the studio in the afternoon.
We will examine different aspects of great paintings such as:
- light and shade
- form and rhythm
- painting composition
- nude, still life, and figure painting
Although some examination of technique will be covered, you will be encouraged to experiment and develop your own style.
Level: This course is suitable for students with any level of painting experience, including beginners.
