Monday 27th July to Friday 31st July

Using a range of wet and dry media you will follow procedures designed to help you make strong and dynamic drawings to support a more contemporary approach to impasto painting. The focus at the start of the week is to build a series of studies and long drawings made from observation. The next step will be to work from these drawings in paint. As well as developing new 'making' skills you will learn to consider your work, to select, adjust, de-construct and re-construct. The emphasis is on keeping both your drawing and painting broad, open and informative, combining technical know-how with 'feeling' the mark. The materials list will be comprehensive but will be divided into 'necessary' equipment and 'optional'.
No costs for materials provided by the tutor.
Botanical JANE STROTHER studied at Bath Academy of Art and has worked as a painter, illustrator, printmaker and teacher. She works from her studio in Oxford and teaches for a number of organisations around the county. 'I am a studio painter. I devise and build a final image through many stages and layers of paint. Once the subject is established, the form of the work takes precedent. I am excited by composition, colour proportion and value relationships, the quality of a mark and its location.'
