Painters such as Antoni Tàpies and Jean Dubuffet have pushed the boundaries of painting by experimenting with inventive processes of making and applying paint.
This Summer School will give students a week of playful inquiry into different materials and pigments, giving an understanding into how paint is made and how to create richly layered surfaces. Students will also be encouraged to be creative in the way paint is applied, constructing their own tools from materials such as sticks, sponges, rags and paper. This open approach to painting will eschew detail in favour of the more fundamental underlying relationships within the image. Rather than focussing on a finished piece, students will complete mostly experimental pieces that develop an approach to painting and expand their vocabulary of mark-making.
