Saturday 12th June to Sunday 13th June
Using a range of wet and dry media you
will work from a challenging 'set' following
procedures designed to help you make strong
and dynamic drawings to support a more contemporary
approach to impasto painting. Over
the two days you will draw from observation
and then use the drawings as a resource of
painting. 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 and taking risks! Support and
encouragement will be given at all times.
The materials list will be comprehensive but will be
divided into 'necessary' equipment and 'optional'.
No materials provided by the tutor.
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.'
