Summer School 2023 Walking the Land - Online
Course Dates June 26th - 29th (Monday - Thursday) 2023.
Online Course Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm. The theme of this years Summer School is centred on capturing the sights, sounds, smells and movement of your daily walks in your local landscape. In the month leading up to the course you will make studies whilst walking. We supply you with a series of short films where Emily and Katie demonstrate processes and exercises to help you get started. The drawings, collages, colour notes and writing will help you to find a visual language that could potentially capture fleeting moments of bird song, glimpses of shapes in your periferal vision, moving shadows, the rhythm of our breath and sound of our feet on the earth as we walk, a warm breeze against the skin, vivid light bouncing over foliage and flowers, the tangle and urgent chaos of Nature weaving and pushing forward through the seasons. The many studies made on lcoation will be the material and resource to make paintings from during the live online sessions.
This course shows you how to make poignant drawings and paintings about the things that you notice each day as you walk in the landscape near you. Three themes; Sound, Movement and Time will be the focus to help this exploration of Walking the Land. During this live online workshop Emily and Katie will help you make paintings from ingrediants in the many studies that you will have made prior to the course. Working in series, on up 9 paintings at a time, motifs are intensified, the qualities of paint and colour are pushed into to give back the feeling of place, the movement, sounds and memories of the experience. Each painting will help you move towards abstraction and a poetic language of paint.

"I am so grateful to have been part of the recent magic of the summer school. What you did was unpack the whole process of working outside on studies, bringing them into the studio and then how to put together a painting. You couldn’t have broken it down for us more or facilitated our creativity better."
