About the Course

A studio-based course on contemporary and interdisciplinary approaches to painting. This is an introduction to the 'expanded field of painting' where you will explore personal projects and experiment with unconventional materials and techniques.

During the course, you will investigate alternative material and conceptual approaches to how paintings are created, displayed, and discussed. Traditional painting materials, compositions, concepts, and techniques will be considered and re-imagined in relation to other forms of making, such as: sculpture, textiles, installation, and media.

You will be supported in your development through material demonstrations, individual tuition, led experiments, group discussion, and guidance on sourcing non-traditional materials. Personal experimentation and the use of sketchbooks will be encouraged for testing ideas and gathering inspiration. Students will have the opportunity to develop self-directed projects in conversation with the tutor, and in relation to set topics.

Suitable for all levels, including beginners.
