Event description

Description

Explore traditional and experimental drawing techniques and a range of approaches to mark making through a series of stimulating projects. Presented as part of Phoenix Brighton's Summer Arts School.

The course is centred on the exploration of drawing. It is built around a series of stimulating projects covering the analytical, the objective, the expressive and the experimental. The distinctions between each mode will be explained, through demonstrations and examples using traditional and experimental drawing techniques. You will be encouraged to integrate the range of approaches to mark making into your own personal and individual ideas, Whilst the emphasis is on drawing as process at the end of the course you will have a series of drawings, which reflect a sense of personal discovery as well as an understanding of the broad definition of drawing and breadth of contemporary drawing practice.

Some basic materials, including Fabriano paper, will be provided. Students will need to bring: A3 sketchbook; plastic eraser; solid graphite chunky stick 2B/3B; range of graphite pencils (water soluble ); compressed charcoal stick 2B/3B; range of bristle brushes; craft knife; 3 small tubes of acrylic paint (black, white, yellow ochre).

About Phoenix Brighton Arts Courses

Phoenix Brighton’s arts courses provide a unique mix of high quality workshops aimed at practicing and aspiring artists and art lovers at all levels. They are suitable for anyone (from beginners upwards unless otherwise stated) who wants to learn new skills from professional artists and would like to meet likeminded people in a supportive and creative environment. We normally provide all the basic materials unless stated in the course descriptions. You need to register in advance as some popular courses fill up very quickly.

All courses are aimed at adults (over 18) unless otherwise stated. Course fees are kept as low as possible to encourage everyone to participate in the arts, including those on low incomes but not eligible for benefits, such as many artists. Therefore we do not offer separate concessionary rates for members of the public. We are unable to offer discounted rates for other reasons, for instance if you are unable to attend all the sessions, unless the course has already started and has unfilled spaces.

How To Pay

We accept payment online by PayPal, credit or debit card (as a guest without starting a PayPal account) and offline via cheque (choose the 'show other payment options' under the 'PayPal Checkout' button for this option). Cheques must be payable to "Phoenix Brighton" and sent with full contact details and the name of the course you are booking to: The Artistic Learning Co-ordinator, Phoenix Brighton, 10-14 Waterloo Place, Brighton, BN2 9NB. We regret we do not have the facility to take card payments over the telephone or in person. To pay by card click 'order now' and choose the second option (underneath the pay by PayPal option).
