Description

This course is aimed at anyone interested in understanding and appreciating great paintings from the artists 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. The discoveries and insights made will then be translated into the studio in the afternoon session.

The course will cover different aspects of these great paintings; light and shade, form, rhythm, composition etc. and various subjects; the nude, still life, the figure etc. In the studio we will look at the way the paintings relate to 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. Although some examination of technique will be covered students will be encouraged to develop their own style.

This course is suitable for students with any level of experience including beginners.
