THE FIGURE: DRAWING TO PAINTING

This summer school offers students the opportunity to rejuvenate their practice. We will be working directly from a life model. 

 

DRAWING

Drawing is central to artistic practice. This is true whether one paints abstract or realist works, whether one is a photographer or conceptual artist.The expression of ideas or the expressive potential of ideas can be realised through the intimate process of drawing.This process of engaging with and developing ideas, deepens our understanding of the world around us and allows us a reflection on creativity.

 

PAINTING

I approach the teaching of painting as I would my own painting which is to be both painterly and graphic. Seeing painting as drawing with the brush is a useful place to start and students are guided from this starting point to extend into painting.

 

Allowing oneself the space to look intently and work with focus prepares the way for an authentic learning experience. In this process, the brush or pencil is an extension of the eye passing over the figure ...not so much picture making as learning to see. The artist works from within to find the measure of things. Beyond measurement, there is the ideal in art which we look for and desire.
