Summer Classes


There are a number of classes over the summer, some regular classes, and some new. Please contact me if you want to know more.

Class List

More information about the Evening with Nick Bashall to follow shortly.

There will be more classes that arise at different times over the next few months so keep an eye on the art draw paint website.


If you haven’t been to the Studio at Bransbury come and visit us in August during the Hampshire Open Studios fortnight. There will be more information nearer the time.

Life Drawing, Paper Mâché Sculpture and Paint


N

April 8th, 9th and 10th

10.00am  – 4.00pm

£285/3 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)

March, April, May


New Dates, New Classes…Lots to See

There are new classes, new courses and a few date changes over the next few months. Below are dates and brief descriptions. Click on the titles for fuller explanations about what is on offer.

The first weeks in March form the basis of all drawing and painting, ‘What is it, how big is it and where am I going to put it?’

Life Drawing, Papier Mache Sculpture, and Painting

In the second week in April is the return of this very exciting course. Day one we have a life model who you draw with the intention of building a sculpture. Day two you build a sculpture from your drawings using papier mache and anything you can find that works. Day three you will paint from your sculptures.


On the Shoulders of Giants

Following in the tradition of learning from the great masters we are going to spend the day at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. It has a splendid and varied collection of works. You will see everything (!) in the museum and choose something that you are going to work with.

There will be drawing at the museum followed by two days at the Studio Bransbury copying the picture you chose and taking the ideas forward to create a piece that is all your own.


DRAW, DRAW, DRAW, PAINT, PAINT, PAINT

There will be a return to the regular Drawing and Painting sessions but they will be at the Studio at Bransbury, NOT at Ramshill. These will be suitable for all abilities and will be based on a changing Still Life.

Music and Movement


15th February, 201, 10.00am – 4.30pm

£90/all day, including materials and model

At the Riverside Cottage Studio, Bransbury, SO21 3QJ


People move…

Suitable for all abilities.

In this class you will be looking at the rhythm and pattern of movement, combined with rhythm and movement in music. You will capture the model’s movement and tempo, whether explosive, calm, or repetitive.

There will be a series of exercises designed to show you different ways of interpreting the moving body. The drawings become something very different to photographs or film, but an expression of time and rhythm.

This is exciting drawing to undertake and exciting drawings to see.
