Art Practical: Painting & Drawing the Land

This day course is for nature lovers who would like to express their love of the land through painting and drawing. All welcome but some experience in painting would be useful. In a friendly and supportive group, the tutor will take us through gathering visual references, sketching, colour work and creating a landscape piece of work in your chosen media. Over the day we will spend time out in the landscape, where possible, taking photos and sketch book work. We will 'problem solve' helping us to tackle the challenges that arise in our landscape work by asking the right questions, developing the creative process and compositional skills.

Creative Writing: Freefall: Writing Contemporary Poetry

This five week series of workshops continues Stephen Smith’s popular courses on writing contemporary poetry. These workshops will concentrate on the subject of free-verse and will explore a variety of techniques associated with the genre over the last one hundred years. Each workshop will focus on an important element of free-verse technique and will enable each student to produce the first draft of a poem, which utilises that technique. By the end of the course, each student will have written at least three poems, which they will be encouraged to share with each other in a final session that will explore how to edit and to read.
