CONTEMPORARY PAINTING

CONTEMPORARY PAINTING

The three-day Contemporary Painting course aims to lead participants in a playful journey into the practice of Contemporary painting. You will be guided to work from varying source materials into mapping a painting though the means of drawing and collage, culminating in one or more paintings of a distinct personal contemporary flavour.

The atmosphere will be one of conversation, exchange and group consideration, reflecting on what makes a contemporary painting.

This course offers an opportunity to loosen up by working fluidly from the imagination and from observation. The pace will be fun and dynamic with students being helped to challenge more traditional approaches to begin to form their own ways of painting.
