John Skinner Master Class  ( assisted by Emily Ball )

Dates: 15 - 18 March 2021 (Monday - Thursday)

These courses are only suitable for experienced painters who need help with ongoing work.

“John is uncompromising, bright, funny, passionate and relentless when it comes to painting.  He takes a ‘tough love’ approach to tutoring and will push you out of their comfort zone in his pursuit of helping you progress and develop your work.  His master classes are not for the faint hearted!” Emily Ball.

Each Master Class provide four days of energetic exploration into the nature of painting. John encourages and inspires artists to be courageous and confident with their work. Artists also benefit from the cooperation within a group of like-minded people - offering a diversity of approaches with no limits to the possibilities. Artists bring their own projects and themes and John helps them to develop the subject further. Each masterclass is also supported by Emily Ball, who provides technical assistance, painting demonstrations and supports John in the teaching and delivery of the course, taking an active role in the review of each artist’s work.

With fantastic inspiring lectures and brilliant individual tuition, you will go away from these workshops with lots of new work and a more in depth understanding of what the possibilities of paint have to offer. (Each Master Class is a stand alone course).

This monthly course provides help and support for experienced painters to become confident in establishing and sustaining a good regular working practise and a flow with their work. Both Emily and Julian focus on ways of inspiring a creative energy by giving talks, creating helpful exercises, giving demonstrations and one to one tutorials. Working as a group and individually each artist is helped to put more intensity and content into the work. Artists are given strategies to prevent hesitation, being stuck or bored. Artists need to bring their own subject, studies and on going work to each session. Being part of a group of like minded artists, and attending this course regularly over the year, will help each artist produce a strong and significant body of work, build confidence, independence and trust in their own creative abilities and intuition.

The Creative Painting Space - Term 3 - SUMMER

Course Dates April 14 -16 (Wednesday - Friday) 2021

Choose which sessions in the year you would like to come. Booking ahead is essential to secure your place.

These sessions are designed for artists who need encouragement and support to become more confident and self-motivated with their painting. Artists bring their own subject and the tutor helps them to unpack, research and create their own personal practice, in order to help their work evolve and for them to see the creative possibilities more clearly. As part of the course the tutors also do talks showing the work of other artists. We explore using new materials and tools to play with to refresh and add to what you are doing. In conjunction with this we create practical, creative exercises to unpack the process of painting. Each student is given individual critiques and tuition as well as benefiting from working with a group of like minded artists. Three consecutive days gives the space and time to really see progress and to get absorbed in your work.
