ABSTRACT THOUGHT – PAINTING IN OILS – October 31 to November 3, 2016
ABSTRACT THOUGHT: Painting IN OILS – October 31 to November 3, 2016
The AUGUST Course in Gloucestershire sold out so fast that here’s an opportunity for those of you who are in London this autumn to experience the highs and lows of a four-day practical exploration of abstract painting!!
ART is proof of our ability to think in abstract concepts. This is also what distinguishes us from other animals.
So why did Francis Bacon say ‘the problem with abstract art is that there’s never any tension in it!’?
Let’s use this four-day course on the King’s Road to find out! You can see each day’s theme above.
Oil paint is a natural medium for abstract painting. ‘The paint itself is also an object – it is subject to its own motivation, rules and dynamic which the artist must overcome, ignore or amplify’ wrote Ralph Steadman when discussing Rembrandt.
This course takes place in a well-appointed upstairs room with chairs, projector, tables and all the materials and paint you need, and will be intense and encouraging, founded in research yet subject to gesture and emotion.
We’ll meet at 10.30 am every day and work through til 4.30 pm with a break for lunch (available from the pub downstairs if you like)
All necessary teas, coffees, biscuits are provided every day in the studio, where there is room for a dining table as well as plenty of comfy sofas for the slideshows …
