The course will help you to develop techniques, concepts and practices using drawing, painting and multi media.

Each week will consist of a series of practical exercises with individual tutoring, group discussion and reflections.


Week One

The mimetic approach. Considering how different artists throughout the world have approached the subject of still life, past and present. What can we learn from them?


Week Two

Training the brain to see like an artist. How form occupies space. Practical ideas for beginning and developing a piece of work.


Week Three

The objective approach. The role of careful observation. Noticing the world around us.


Week Four

The expressive approach. Experimentation and the use of instinct. How artists can combine all approaches to enrich their own practices.
