  • October 18th | 1 Day Workshop | 10am - 4pm | The National Gallery  This one day workshop with internationally recognised American painter Elise Ansel, will be an incredible opportunity to be tutored by a hugely successful and boundary pushing contemporary painter, who is rarely available in the UK. The course will be a day spent at The National Gallery, working from the Masters, making drawings and colour studies. Students will have the opportunity to explore the collection and sketch from a range of paintings before choosing one masterpiece that they would like to focus on in depth, studies will be made in a range of quick sketches, in both black and white and colour, using graphite pencils and felt tip markers, before embarking on a longer sustained drawing of the masterwork.  The purpose of this workshop is not to ‘copy’ the masters, though this may be a preliminary stage in the process for some students. But rather to study a single master painting in depth through the process of drawing in order to use it as point of departure for an original work of contemporary art. Balance due no later than six weeks prior to the course date see Terms and Conditions for full details.

  • Thursday 25th & Friday 26th January 2018 | 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.
