Description

Alternative Approaches to Drawing and Painting - An Introduction // A week long course with the artist Tadhg McGrath // Monday August 20th to Friday August 24th // 10:00 - 16:00


This week long summer course is designed for those who wish to explore alternative methods of panting and drawing, building on work from observation and making artworks based on found images, photographs and abstraction. The exercises will explore the different ways that drawing and painting can be used to explore subjects beyond simply recording and observing. Through practical demonstrations and experimentation the participants will be encouraged to explore ways in which contemporary art can deal with expressing personal experiences and the idea of abstraction.

Studies in composition and mark-making will explore the use of imagery from sources such as news media and advertising, as starting points for paintings which are more than simple recordings. Suitable for both practising artists and those just starting off, the workshop will provide students with a framework of exercises to allow them to really explore painting. This will allow you to find and develop a personal method to use abstract and semi-figurative techniques in artmaking.


Monday August 20th - Friday August 24th inclusive

10am until 4pm with an hour for lunch.

A life model will be used on 2 of the days, and all materials will be supplied (though a materials list will be sent to each student should you wish to build your own set)

Course Fee: €250

A deposit of €100 secures your place.
