Easter Holiday // Inspired by the V&A: Drawing into Sculpture
This five-day sculpture and drawing course uses the rich collection at the V&A Museum as our resource. Students will visit the museum up to three times during the week to spend time drawing directly from the collection. Each day we will examine the different cultures represented at the museum either on site or in the studio with reproductions, and through drawing, find a way to understand the distinct attitude, philosophy and sensibility that the cultures bring to their feeling for and handling of materials and subject. In the studio, we will work with a model, exploring the approach discovered whilst working from the collection, to sculpt a head. At the end of the week it is intended that we will have a number of small heads and drawings each suffused with a distinctly different sense. This highly structured course is intended to appeal to those wanting to extend and develop their ways of seeing and working through art, examining the age old relationship between sculpture, drawing and painting, and the draughtsmanship issues connected with using drawing as an interpretive and constructional tool. Beyond this we hope to have an enjoyable, stimulating and productive time.
