SUMMER TERM 2013

Tuesday


Flora: Summer Still Lives 
Charlotte Verity / Clare Newbolt
23/04/2013 - 25/06/2013
10:00-17:00  Kensington Palace Studios
Book now

In Nature we perceive an entire beauty: “a light of laughing flowers” (Shelley); in painting we see a sense of permanence in a transient world. To paint a flower can be as demanding as painting a human face. We will consider how to translate into paint their brightness and fragility, their strength and their exquisite design. There will be different fresh flowers each week and in the natural light of the studios we will consider many aspects of making paintings using these fleeting motifs as our subject.


Sculpting an Equine Head
Marcus Cornish
23/04/2013 - 25/06/2013
10:00-17:00 Kensington Palace Studios
Book now

On this course students will make a sculpture of a horse’s head in clay in three dimensions. Students will visit The British Museum to look at the considerable, beautiful and varied historical items eluding to the horse. Drawing from these objects and from life at local stables, will give us the information we need to start sculpting. We will build out from the skull to the muscle and skin of this most powerful and beautiful creature.

-Students will be sent a materials list and fact sheet before the start of the course.


Painting: From the Human Form
John Lessore / Paul Gopal-Chowdhury
23/04/13 - 25/06/13
10:00-17:00  Sydney Close Studios
Book now

The first part of this life painting course will cover the “nuts and bolts” of painting including tone, temperature, space and composition. Later in the term, there will be an emphasis on colour with students exploring how to make colour equivalents for the model in space. Whereas drawing is used to explore a rational understanding of form, colour has its own logic and students will be encouraged to find a balance between these two ways of seeing. This course is designed for students of all levels.


Evening Life Drawing
Pippa Ridley / Sophie Charalambous
23/04/2013 - 25/06/2013
18:30-21:00  Kensington Palace Studios

Book now

This course gives students an opportunity to draw from observation and further their understanding of drawing by regular study of a life model. There is a different model each week, with short and long poses. All levels welcome including beginners.
