TUTOR: LINDA HOLLOWAY
This course with artist Linda Holloway is an exploration around methods and materiality in painting. It will allow students, who already have experience in painting, to experiment, develop an enquiry, enrich their skills, and their confidence in their work with the support of an experience mentor. Linda Holloway will guide the students and support them to create their own artwork after a series of guided exercises which will allow progress in technique as well as developing a critical eye.
This course is ideal for students with previous experience in painting or with a personal art practice, who want assistance to examine their practice and push their own boundaries.
The course comprises 30 hours of tuition and focuses on the students work in progress and practical exercises. It runs over 6 evening classes (6pm to 9pm) and culminates with a weekend practice (9.30am to 4.30pm both days) at the end of the 6 weeks.
Week 1: Assessing where the students are at and provide individual mentoring
Week 2 & 3: Practical exercise: Interpreting the landscape
Week 4 & 5: Practical Exercise: Interpreting the figure
Week 6: Re-assessing what has been learnt, integrating it into personal art practice, and begin a new work to be developed at the weekend intensive.
Weekend: Personal work development with tutor supervision and guidance
Please bring between 3 and 5 of your work at the first session (or photos of your work).
