Painting and Drawing: Figuration and Abstraction (1)

20 September - 18 October 2018

Thursdays, 10.30 – 1.00pm

In this five-week course participants will explore a range of painting and drawing techniques, to look at ideas of abstraction, figuration, failure and success. Participants will be encouraged to take an experimental and playful approach, considering layering, line, form and humour, using acrylics, oils and drawing materials.
This course will run alongside Amy Sillman’s solo exhibition, Landline, and will take inspiration from Sillman’s active approach to making and use of humour in her work.

Additional information:

  • This course is suitable for all levels and abilities.
  • This course runs twice. Please only book a single place on one of the two courses to ensure as many people as possible are able to participate.
  • All materials and equipment are included.

Matthew Krishanu will lead this course. Matthew graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2009. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, and regularly leads workshops in painting and drawing. Four of Matthew’s paintings have recently been acquired by the Arts Council Collection. Read more
