Through the School of Painting, creative minds come together to learn, share experiences and ideas. As artist/tutor, a strong, professional empathy is essential to the courses I ‘build’ for those already engaged in their creative thinking and practices. Teaching is more a dialogue, an inclusive process of respect for each artists’, individual communication, development and talents in visual art.
I trained in Fine Art Painting and Drawing, my post-graduate research explores the notion of fragment and site in architectural weathering. From these disciplined and interrogative approaches, I embrace the intuitive and non-predictive facets of the ‘messy’ and playful parts to ‘thinking in making’. My passion is for the materials I use and the complexities of my haptic knowledge and visual understanding.
This mentoring course for practicing artists is led by two highly experienced contemporary, abstract artists. The tutors’ expertise in the language of abstract art will provide a productive, critical approach to the development of your practice, through in-depth tutorials and group discussion. Working in a supportive studio environment, you will focus on ideas and processes that enable you to gain understanding and confidence in your own discoveries.
