A painting course for all levels including beginners with individual one-to-one tuition.

For the first five weeks there will be different poses and a sustained pose over the final five weeks.

 -A full list of materials required will be sent to students before the class commences.


Life Painting: Figure in a Room
Francis Hoyland
22/04/2013 - 24/06/2013
10:00-17:00  Sydney Close Studios

Book now

What we are is bound to be the module for what we perceive. How many steps would it take us to reach the far wall? How heavy does that man over there look compared to my weight? And so on. This is part of the way we perceive our environment. It’s relatively simple for us to empathise with one other person, but can we empathise with one other room with a whole person in it? Again, this is a matter of empathy stretching from ourselves to our surroundings. I can’t do better than Rainer Maria Rilke who wrote “Space spreads transposingly from us to things”. So to a certain extent the journey out is always the journey in. There will be two sustained poses over the term, each of five weeks’ duration. This will give us the advantage of painting onto dry paint each week.

 -A full list of materials required will be sent to students before the class commences.

In this class students will be encouraged to consider how the model relates to the environment they are situated in, the emphasis being on finding equivalents in colour for their experience of looking at the model (and their surroundings). The length of pose will vary from one to several sessions. Individual tuition will be given. All levels welcome including beginners.
