A week exploring sea stories and tidal tales.
Young artists on this course will develop their observational drawing skills whilst also considering more expressive means of exploring form and surface. Students will work from an inspiring self-led trip to the beach, or be provided with inspirational images of the sea, and will learn about drawing on location, developing sketchbooks, collecting found materials and panoramic sketching. The young artists will spend the week developing their initial drawings into more imaginative drawing approaches using materials found at home. The week will include talks from your tutor, individual tutorials, as well as games and group discussions. Students will finish with a diverse range of work, having built on their creative skills as artist, and we will create an online exhibition to celebrate the finished work.
All UK-based students will be provided with an A4 Leith School of Art sketchbook and set of 3 paintbrushes. These will be sent by post prior to the course. If booking within 3 days of the course start date we can not guarantee that these items will reach you in time for the beginning of the course. Students must source all other required materials and advice on suppliers will be provided upon booking. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this.
