What you will do
Eleven session course
We will develop a framework for critical thinking and formulate our own creative responses. In each class you will be given a themed presentation and a tour of selected artworks followed by the opportunity to draw directly from the original artworks. The final 3 sessions will be spent in the studio developing ideas from these sketches into a final piece. Questions we will discuss will include: who is making this artwork, who is being presented and how are they being portrayed? We will learn to look at artworks with a sensitivity to feminist art history and the representation of women. As we develop our drawings of the artworks, we will ask: how might we re-imagine these artworks to make them reflect contemporary London and our own life experiences? This course will be taught by Sarah Lightman PhD.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, Richmond School of Painting

The Richmond School of Painting focuses on painting from observation and students are encouraged to try our various media and approaches. Class sizes are never more than 15 to ensure that each student gets individual attention and guidance.
The school provides a relaxed environment where students feel they can take risks in their art without criticism while being stretched in unexpected and challenging ways.
Heading up the teaching is owner of the school, Guy Shoham, who graduated with a distinction from the M.A. programme at Chelsea College of Art before gaining a scholarship to attend the ‘Drawing Year’ at the Royal School of Drawing.
