'Drawing for contemporary painting'
Jane Strother
This course is fully booked but waiting list available.
Contact Gemma Wheeler on 07732 336377 for possible availability.

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.
lino 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.'
