Freedom of Abstraction - Expansive Large Scale Painting
Course dates: Febuary 19th - 11st 2024 (Monday to Wednesday)
By stripping back painting to its most primary concerns and looking at the relationship between yourself and the materials, we can discover painting through its most tactile components , process, surface and touch. The three day course will encourage you to make a collection of expansive, large scale paintings and drawings, exploring rhythms in abstraction. Core to the course will be the importance of creating systems to underpin your work and developing the work through layering, mark making and expression.
Throughout the course there will be a number of different exercises to help develop the work. We will also be looking at the history of abstraction along with contemporary artists and their techniques, showing the expansive ways they are making paintings, through surfaces and processes. The course includes studio based activities and individual tutorials. This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in abstraction or would like to work on an ambitious scale.
