Event details

This course examines the theory and practice behind a range of art movements with an illustrated lecture looking at context and incorporating group discussion. This is followed by a practical session in which techniques and ideas are sampled.

Exploring the Still Life

This broad and highly personal genre was taken to new heights of experimentation by Picasso and Braque in the early 20th Century. We will look at the way artists have responded to still life subjects with a series of practical exercises using drawing materials, paint and collage, using chosen objects. By the end of the Unit you will be able to make experimental and resolved still life art, and expand your knowledge of this genre.
