Classes

3 hour workshop

Daytime

This class is suitable for both beginners and more experienced painters and drawers.

The class will build your confidence and skill in drawing and painting the human form from observation. The class will begin with a discussion on the fascination of representing the figure in art and explore why it is still so important today. Followed by looking at the building blocks of drawing into painting, exploring line, tone and colour. Then onto personal expression and experimentation with a range of media and subject matter.

Working from observation, these classes will be as much about looking as representing the form. The aim is to work towards one painting per session to encourage quick intuitive painting, focusing on the looking will train the eye to be able to react in unison with the brush to gain quick, desired results which will culminate in a longer more considered painting which still has that exciting freshness of the first mark making.

You will delve deep into the history of paintings inhabited by the figure and from Matisse to Chris Ofilli, Rembrandt to Edvard Munch we will look at rhythm, composition and atmosphere.

You will draw and paint from objects and scenes, from old and modern masters, from life models, and from ourselves. In lots of exciting exercises we will learn about using different kinds of paint, ink, and drawing mediums, the theories behind each material and traditional and contemporary application.

These classes are taught by Katie Brookes.
