Sculpting with Colour Two Day Art Course

Abstract Painting
X

Description

This course is part of Dillington Discovery Autumn week.

Many of us are quite at home with the business of working in two-dimensions. Drawing and painting, we feel, are things we understand, if only intuitively. But how might an artist, habituated to those two disciplines, approach sculpture? How do we move from creating in two dimensions to making in three? Isn’t it entirely different? And what happens to all the things we already know about art? Can we hold on to our beloved lines and colours, for example, or do we have to give them up?

In this one and half day course we will learn how to liberate our work from the wall and move it out into the environment. At the same time, a working knowledge of that tricky third dimension will give us deeper insights into the two we feel we already know.
(Finishes at lunch on Friday)
