Classes Autumn Term


There is nothing like a wet Sunday in August to remind you that the seasons are changing, ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’ will be available in shops near you before too long, and the Autumn Term is upon us.

Below is a list of the classes currently available.  Click on titles for more information. If you want to contact me please send me an email Kate Measham

I hope to squeeze in a couple more classes  at some point so keep an eye out for updates.

£265/3 days

At the Studio, Riverside Cottage, Bransbury

On this three day course you will start with a life model, drawing for reference and information. Using  very rapid sculptural techniques you will construct 3D models from your drawings using paper mâché, tape, wood, and probably wire, and anything else that seems appropriate. When you start to ‘draw’ the model in 3D different information is needed – this adds to the interesting step from straight forward life drawing to sculpture.

The sculpture will become the model for your drawing and painting over the rest of the course.

This method opens your imagination to adapting the model. It sounds a bit weird and creepy – and why not? The models can take you way beyond masks, or even catrinas as seen below. The resulting drawings and paintings have an observed reality. It should be an exciting few  days.

Coffee, tea, biscuits and a light lunch will be provided each day.

Some materials will be provided but you will be encouraged to use/recycle old drawings and paintings as well as other dry waste materials (egg cartons, loo roll holder, boxes, posters…who knows)
