Extended Contemporary Painting Course


Course Tutor: Luke Skiffington

Between Autumn 2018 and Spring 2019, this newly formed group will meet every three weeks to create and follow a self-directed project, with tutorial support from artist Luke Skiffington. This Course will include both practical sessions held at OVADA and visits to Galleries, which will be ‘task’ based and designed to create more in depth understanding of a particular aspect of painting.

This Course is most suited to artists with previous experience of painting who are looking for feedback about their work and who are wishing to progress their own ideas in a supportive environment. Participants will need to allow time to work on the projects in their own time between the sessions.

Timetable:
The course comprises of 12 sessions held on Thursdays (10am – 4pm), starting on 20 September 2018 and finishing on 23 May 2019. There will be breaks during October Half Term and Christmas. Download the provisional 2018/19 timetable HERE.
