Short Course: Un-still Life Drawing (2 days)

Taking inspiration from the Elizabeth Murray exhibition at Camden Arts Centre, this two-day course will take a playful approach to still life, working with collage, ink and a range of drawing materials. Participants will work through a series of dynamic exercises, to test and stretch the traditional rules around life drawing, considering perspective, colour, composition, scale and shadow. All materials are provided.

Phil Goss will lead this course. Through drawing Phil creates images that conjure up a feeling or way of looking at something that cannot be expressed clearly in language. He often uses his surroundings as inspiration, distilling urban landscapes and still life into line drawings and adding colour intuitively. His work ranges from ink drawings to working with textiles and installation. Phil graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2013.  He has shown at the V&A Museum, Evelyn Yard Gallery, Josh Lilley Gallery, Aldeburgh Lookout Tower, Geddes Gallery and London Design Festival; designed print for Folk and Paul Smith and has produced bespoke interiors for Alex Eagle, Blacks, Fix126, Santoremedio. He is currently the Director of the Centre for Recent Drawing in London. Read more.
