Breaking free from the need for realistic representation, students on this Summer School will develop unique and expressive ways of depicting the figure.

Over the first three days, students will engage in guided drawing and painting exercises. We will explore drawing and painting from photographs, paintings and our imagination, and one day will be spent working from a model.

How the human form has been stylised through the ages will be looked at including how different cultures have depicted themselves in art. Inspired by the work of artists such as Matisse, Max Beckmann, Goya and Joan Eardley, we will find our own unique ways of representing the body over the course of the week. The final two days of the course will be spent on a more resolved painting.

Ideal for those seeking to explore a departure from traditional realism and expressive, unique ways of depicting the human figure.
