PLEASE NOTE that for the first term of 2021 I will be offering this course on-line rather than face to face to accommodate the covid pandemic. Numbers will be limited to 12 students.
These art courses offer insights into innovative art projects, exploring many ways of using techniques and media, through drawing and painting. Courses are often linked to an artist or artists but not always. However artist research, discussion and critique are fundamental to the teaching and students are encouraged to participate in these aspects.
Black Mountain Chapel will be the theme for this terms work. This delightful Baptist chapel is situated in Bettws-y-crwyn in the Shropshire Hills and was probably built in the 1850's. In 2019 after sitting derelict, was renovated by the local community. It offers wonderful opportunities for students to draw inspiration from, and to study the exterior, the surrounds and the building itself. Artists have used chapels, churches and graveyards for their drawings and paintings for many years and we will gain further insights and ideas by doing this kind of research. Students unable to visit the chapel will be provided with images, although visiting the chapel is recommended.
