About The Course
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.
