Contemporary Painting with Philippa Hagon
In this course you will be looking at what is happening in Painting today…
Various approaches are used to help extend & inspire new directions in your own art practice… at the same time developing & connecting to your sensibility & creative strengths.
Painting & drawing techniques will be taught such as but not limited to:- line, shape & form, colour & light, mark making variations, collage, spatial complexities, compositional devices, scale changes plus material & medium use.
Working from observation & existing material students will produce multiple studies each informing the next with surprising results quite different from the source material… pushing further into abstraction & blurring the line between abstract & representation. Artists both Historical & Contemporary will be looked at & their influences discussed.
A series of works will be developed. Exploration & development will be different for each student.
Students are welcome to bring in their own images or subject as a catalyst
All levels welcome
