One Year Practical Portfolio Course on the Figure


The One Year Figure Course will be running again from October of 2017 over three terms and enables students to immerse themselves in responding to the human form through taught sessions in drawing and painting from leading artists over the course of a year.

Beginning every October, the course takes place over three terms on Thursdays with regular practical sessions and one-to-one tuition from leading visiting artists who are renowned for working with the figure including Jason Walker, Kate Walters, Jesse Leroy Smith, Faye Dobinson, Sam Bassett, Marie Claire Hamon among others.

The dates of the course for 2017/2018 will be as follows;


October 19, November 2,9,16,23 & 30, December 7


January 11,18 & 25, February 1, 8 & 22, March 1,8, 15, 22 & 29

April 19 & 26, May 3

For many people this year long course will be an excellent opportunity to make a large body of work and push forward their practice and confidence in painting and drawing under the guidance of many of the most respected artists working in Cornwall. There will also be some opportunity to try your hand at printmaking in response to the figure.

The 2017/2018 course will cost £2,100 including all materials used during the sessions at the art school.

Application will be through digital images (around 5 jpgs) sent in of your work and a short covering letter email saying why you would like to do the course and what experience you have of drawing and painting.
