Summer School – 2 Days: Architectural Drawing & Painting: Expressions

This class will seek to find ways to create lively and expressive drawings and paintings of buildings.

What The Course is About:

The course will cover aspects of perspective and analysing and simplifying complex structures into underlying shapes and patterns. Weather permitting, we will go outside, sketching buildings and taking photos to use as reference material back in the studio. We will explore different creative ways of responding to the built environment and experimenting with a variety of materials and techniques. We will look at a range of artists including: jJohn Piper, Edward Hopper, Thomas Jones, Antoni Gaudi, Anselm Kieffer and Vincent van Gogh.

Materials Required:

Materials Required: Pencils (HB, B), ruler, craft knife, A4, A2 cartridge paper, watercolour paper, watercolour and acrylic paints, coloured pencils if you have them. If you could bring pieces of cardboard that would be a help.

Previous Experience:

Suitable for all levels.

End of course:

What will I achieve? Greater confidence in drawing from observation and using this experience as a basis to create lively and expressive artwork through handling a variety of media.
