Our classical program will be presented over 4 weekend workshops beginning with Drawing 1 (Sat & Sun 18–19 January) and Drawing 2 (Sat & Sun 29 Feb–1 Mar); followed by Painting 1 (2–3 May) and Painting 2 (4–5 July). Participants will benefit from undertaking all four workshops, but may choose to select fewer. Using the techniques taught in art schools until the early twentieth century, participants will develop sufficient skill in drawing and painting to produce high quality figurative works in charcoal and oils. Each session will operate in the atelier tradition in which students and tutor work together on the same project with the tutor providing personal assistance and critiques as the class progresses.
