Experimental Painting Course with Theo Carter-Weber Cornwall


This exciting two day course gives artists of all levels the opportunity to explore new painting materials and methods with which they might transform their painting practice. Through a mixture of one to one tuition and demonstrations Tutor Theo Carter-Weber will help students to push the boundaries of their practice. This course will bring out the playful artist in you.

The course will enable students to try out all sorts of techniques which they might not have previously combined with their work. Collage, oil based resist, pen and ink, intaglio mark making, word association, dry pigment and many more exciting elements which will hugely increase the armoury of techniques used in students’ future painting practice.

Theo will be taking over the Experimental Painting course from 2019 after Sam Bassett teaches his last date in November of 2018. Sam will continue to teach on our year long courses.

All drawing materials, supports and paint will be supplied by the art school.
