During this five-day course, colour will be an important theme to explore: to give an equivalent to the glowing red earth, rugged vistas to the sea, the wiry, bleached vegetation and beautiful light.

STUDIO RESIDENCY WEEK 

With JULIAN BROWN

 “Last year’s residency became one of the most productive and insightful weeks I had all year. It created a dialogue with fellow artists sometimes missing after you leave art school. It was a collaborative learning experience; I found it an environment where I could pass on my knowledge and experience. Being open about our creative processes made it a fulfilling, useful and generous experience.”

with KATIE SOLLOHUB

This week long residency is for anyone wishing to use drawing to expand their practice, giving dedicated time and a generous space to commit to making your work. Katie will be making large scale drawings and installations,

inspired by movement, dance, improvisation and story telling.

 

“I aim to use this residency week to explore what happens when I have a large space, and a sustained length of time, to simply draw, and

explore, with no boundaries… To be totally immersed in the process of drawing."

~ Katie Sollohub‍

 


This week makes an ideal follow-on from Katie’s two-day Embodied Drawing course (running the week before). Emily will also be doing her own drawings in the studio during the residency week. There is a lot of energy, expertise and inspiration that can be gleaned from working next to two professional artists!
