Join this course if you would love to embrace creative process and play with intention. This course will encourage you to ‘be less precious’, let go of ‘thinking’ and embrace the possibility and potential of ‘mistakes’ – all whilst gaining insight into your unique visual language, intuition and taste.
You will: Work outside and in the studio with fast, intuitive and expressive drawings and paintings inspired by the Shropshire Landscape.
Use accidents and physical texture as an essential part of the drawing process and consider layers, and visual texture.
Employ processes of construction and destruction to move your source material into studies for paintings through collage.
Gain insight into your own unique visual language through reflection and conscious exploration of colour relationships, texture and composition.
Take creative risks, and have fun.
