Summer School Workshops 2018
1 day and 2 day workshops

Drawing and sketching the South Downs on location

Tuesday 31st July 10.00am - 3.45pm £48

This course is great way to increase your artistic confidence and do something refreshingly different. Using the open spaces available outdoors we will explore unusual approaches to drawing to help you gain confidence with working outside. We will be concentrating on responding to the environment from observation using mark-making, with conventional and unusual tools. We'll work with ink, charcoal and colour on A2 size paper. The experience of working outside is exciting in itself. Working on a larger scale can provide a new freedom. It's great fun to let go, adding to your range of experience and gaining new skills. There is the potential of lift sharing or public transport. Location to be confirmed.

Oils - An introduction to impressionistic landscape painting using solvent free methods

2 day workshop Wed 1st and Thurs 2nd August 10am - 3.45pm £95

This workshop can be combined with the drawing outdoors day. Oils are a rich painting medium that can be intimidating at times. This course aims to demystify them and help you gain the confidence to use them successfully. Their slower drying properties allow for easy blending than acrylics and texture is retained when they are dry. We will reference Edward Stott who was described as 'the poet-painter of the twilight', focusing our attention on responding to landscape photos and/or sketches. We will be making oil sketches and a larger painting at A3 or larger on canvas, boards or canvas paper. It's a great opportunity to explore this exciting painting medium.

Suitable for beginners and experienced.

Colour Lino printing - Reduction method

2 day workshop Wed 8th and Thurs 9th Aug 10.00am - 3.45pm £95 + £10 materials fee

Lino cutting is a wonderfully bold and exciting print medium. To create colour layers you'll learn how to cut and print each layer, gradually overprinting, to create a richly coloured print. We will create registration blocks and you'll be making a small edition of prints.
The process involves simplifying images to translate them onto the lino and then cutting into the blocks using lino tools to make varied marks, colours are built up in layers starting with the lightest first and building up to the darkest last. Suitable for experienced, intermediate and for beginners.

Pen and wash / Watercolour / Pastel - Painting flowers, working using sketchbooks

1 day workshop Tues 14th August 10am - 3.45pm £50

Looking at flowers and plants we will explore drawing and painting using a variety of techniques, including pen and wash, fine liners, soluble inks, watercolour, pastel, all to get your sketchbooks going. Bring along a sketchbook with good quality paper (thick cartridge or watercolour paper) and a variety of materials you'd like to work with. Materials will also be available on the day.

Simple relief collograph printing

1 day workshop Wed 15th August 10.00am - 3.45pm £55 price includes materials fee

A great way to try out printmaking and perfect for beginners, collograph creates beautiful sensitive marks and is lots of fun. This particular approach is an extension of drawing.

We will be firmly drawing onto card to create an embossed linear image and then rolling with ink to print in relief. It is surprising how little impression is needed to create marks. There will be lots of time to print using various colours.
Suitable for beginners and experienced.

Painting outside - Up on the Downs

1 day workshop 10.00am - 3.45pm Thurs 6th Sept £48

This one-day workshop takes you outside to enjoy the challenge and excitement of painting and sketching outdoors. Painting outside gives so much inspiration; it not only provides visual information to work from, but also means that you can soak up the atmosphere, the temperature and weather conditions, which all contribute to the final works. The location will be given nearer the time once weather conditions have been assessed.

Expressive landscape - Using acrylics, collage and texture mediums in the studio

2 day workshop Fri 7th Sept - Sat 8th Sept 10am – 3.45pm £95

This workshop can be linked to the painting and drawing outdoors workshops or you can work from photos and sketches gathered previously.

We' will explore using a combination of paint, collage, texture mediums to make personalised expressive images based on the theme of landscape . This is a very creative way of making images using a combination of collage and paint that leads to exciting finished results. It is freeing and exciting as there is an element of surprise as the picture develops.
