Event description

Description

This is a repeat of Workshop 4, led by Gill Walton, with assistance from Prof. Maria Chester. It is part of a programme of events around Drawn from Life: People on Paper, an Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition hosted by Berwick Visual Arts at the Granary Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed. The exhibition runs from 28th October 2017 to 7th January 2018, Wednesday to Sunday from 11 am to 4pm. Entry to the exhibition is free.

The workshops will be a series of practical art sessions, giving amateur and professional artists the opportunity to explore some of the drawing techniques used by a range of 20th c artists whose work is on display in this exhibition. Each session, which can be booked separately, will focus on a different subject: Line, Tone, Proportion, Abstraction and Expression, and will include a guided tour of the exhibition. Each session will include a life model, and is limited to 10 students.

Workshop 6. Tuesday 12th December: Abstraction

In this session, looking at artists such as Reg Butler, Jane Dixon, Michael Landy and Wyndham Lewis, we will take the figure as a starting point, we will work inside out, flatten the figure and work in cubist shapes.

Each workshop begins at 10 am with a guided tour of the exhibition by Gill or Maria, followed by a two-hour practical session. There will be a half-hour break for lunch and you can bring your own lunch or eat in The Granary cafe. There will then be a further practical session from 1 pm to 3 pm.

Please bring your preferred materials (eg Charcoal/ pencils/ pastels/ink and paper). If you have an easel, do bring it along. If you have any questions about the course content, contact Gill on 07702 811374.

Space is limited so early booking is advised.
