Tuesday Still Life Drawing & Painting

Tuesdays 1.30pm – 5pm

  • 10 British pounds
  • Scarborough - Pay-As-You-Go

There's something a bit old and fusty about the still life genre, isn't there? With life drawing, there's a beating heart at the centre of the subject but still life with its apples and oranges, mugs and jugs just feels a bit, well... still. Except it's really not. It has a rich tradition within art history and all the movers and shakers from bygone years found drawing and painting inanimate objects in some sort of arrangement endlessly fascinating... Picasso and Van Gogh to name two. We will provide easels and boards as well as free newsprint, charcoal and pencils; but please bring any other materials you might require. Maybe get yourself an A3 or A2 drawing pad so you can draw on better quality paper (newsprint is a bit thin); and if you want to paint then please bring oils, acrylics, gouache or watercolours. Tuition is on hand. You'll be encouraged to reach for some ideals with regard to how things appear (although if you want to go off on your own creative journey then that's encouraged, too). You will be reminded that objects have their role as part of a group of objects. Some sit behind, others stand in front; some reflect, others absorb. What is the role of shadows? What happens to the colour of the orange when it's reflected in the yellow cup? In this class you will learn to unpick the qualities of objects, what gives them weight and what sets them apart. Tuesdays 1.30pm - 5pm with Bobby Hick This pay-as-you-go class takes place at: North Yorks Art School 2-4 South Street Scarborough YO11 2BP
