  • Monday 11th & Tuesday 12th March 2019 | 10am – 4pm | 2 Days | Oils Taught by Slade trained artist Ann Gardner, who rarely teaches in UK, this 2 day Masterclass is an exceptional treat and opportunity to gain knowledge from a practicing artist who was taught by Euan Uglow, Lucien Freud, Patrick George, William Coldstream and Cragie Atchinson. The main objective of this 2 day course is to teach the students how to paint a 'head' or a three dimensional object in space onto a two dimensional surface i.e. the picture plane, the surface of a canvas. There are many ways to approach this, using light source and tonality, comparative measurements and flat pattern making. Ann Gardner will explain these approaches clearly to each student and work closely with them as they paint. She will also teach how to handle the materials, how to mix colour and to draw with it building up the image. Through out the course Ann will be referring to artists notably Cezanne, Rembrandt, Titian and other great painters, suggesting paintings that will help students,  can easily be viewed in for The National Gallery London and further afield. The overall object is for students to learn how to look - not to create a fleeting likeness but to tap into and contain reality. To learn and understand the building blocks of painting and drawing. All the approaches that will be taught can be used in all aspects of future paintings, landscape, still life and abstract work. Pay full amount or deposit. Balance due no later than 6 weeks before the course date, see Terms and Conditions for full details.

  • July 1st & 2nd 2019  | Oils | 10am - 4pm This Portrait Painting Masterclass will begin with a brief introduction from Tim Benson about the philosophy behind his style of work as well as the choice of materials he uses. Students will be asked to undertake some small, quick oil sketches. Each sketch eliminating the need for detail, rather concentrating on the basics of form, tone and colour. Later in the day there will be more sustained poses which will continue into the second day, where students will have the chance to consolidate the ‘loose’ approach on a larger scale, retaining the painterly language and avoiding the impulse to add detail. At the end of the second day there will be a one-on-one critique/discussion of student’s work. Pay full amount or deposit.
