Miniature | Magnitude, Magnitude | Miniature

18 - 22 July 2021

Tutor: Eleanor White


Inspiration from natural forms, the man made world and the west coast landscape will act as the focus and direction for this course. Taking a small or familiar plant form into the studio to draw from in various diverse ways will start the course. Seeing the familiar at close range can broaden our horizons and challenge the perception of what and how we see. From this we will venture out into the landscape to look at how objects and man-made forms that are discarded or overlooked inhabit the land in conjunction with the tangle of nature. Culminating all that close and observed looking and experimentation with mixed media we will leave the comfort of the studio and go out on location and work outside in the landscape in spite of all or any weather to experience the magnitude and miniature held within the vast west coast landscape. Emphasis will be placed on observation combined with experimentation of mixed media.

A course that would suit both beginners and experienced artists alike as all materials will be provided and clear demonstrations will be given at start of each day. Come with an open mind, wear old warm waterproof clothes (jacket and trousers) a willingness to create work outside in the North West coast weather in April and not forgetting, a sense of humour.

There will be a charge of £15 per person, payable to Eleanor at the start of the course, to cover all materials this includes all prepared papers, use of large boards, a toolbox full of basic acrylic paints and texture paste, all drawing materials and a softback sketchbook.
