Imagined Landscapes painting course Louise Thomas artist Cornwall


This wonderful course shows students how paintings can take appropriated material as their inspiration creating landscapes of limitless potential. Paintings can become remarkable combinations of collage and paint with the use of anything from early photography through to depictions of contemporary culture or dramatic topographical and architectural backdrops from distant times and places. Also includes an exploration of contemporary painting materials and processes.

Louise is a respected contemporary painter working in Berlin and she returns to her home town of Penzance a few times a year. She has been an artist speaker at the Royal Academy and Serpentine Gallery in recent years.
