*New Six Week Course*

Exploring techniques through Still-Life


Still life course with tutor and artist Jane Scrivener

The tutor:

Jane Scrivener

“After my BA from Brighton I did an MA in Fine Art at KIAD (Kent Institute of Art & Design). I taught Post-16 students Levels 2&3 for over 20 years in Kent and Wiltshire. Since 2014 I have been teaching leisure courses to adults.

Drawing is my first love and the starting point of everything I do, particularly  life-drawing. Our bodies/ourselves, are the vehicles through which we navigate our world, they/we are complex, resilient, unique and challenging. All of my work derives in one form or another from the human figure – usually portrayed in isolation.

I enjoy experimenting with media and materials to create textured surfaces and layered images looking for the aesthetic in shape and space, natural forms and the flow of the drawn line, but I also embrace the absurdities of life, our internal conversations and the conflict between what we reveal and what we conceal of ourselves to others.”

The course:

Each week there will be a still-life that presents a new challenge – through drawing, colour or technique. We will look at how working with a limited palette can be highly effective or how to describe distortion looking through objects.

Aimed at people who have some drawing/painting experience and are looking to extend and explore new ideas.
