ONE YEAR PRACTICAL COURSE – THE FIGURE
The One Year Practical Course based on the subject of the figure runs on Fridays over three eight week terms and enables students to immerse themselves in responding to the human form through taught sessions in drawing and painting from leading artists over the course of a year.
Beginning every October, the course takes place over three terms on Fridays with regular practical sessions and one-to-one tuition from leading visiting artists who are renowned for working with the figure including Jason Walker, Tim Shaw, Kate Walters, Jesse Leroy Smith, Faye Dobinson, Sam Bassett, Marie Claire Hamon among others.
For many people this year long course will be an excellent opportunity to make a large body of work and push forward their practice and confidence in painting and drawing under the guidance of many of the most respected artists working in Cornwall. There will also be some opportunity to try your hand at printmaking in response to the figure.
Application will be through digital images (around 5 jpgs) sent in of your work and a short covering letter email saying why you would like to do the course and what experience you have of drawing and painting.
