‘What I see’

28th July - 1st August 2014
Tutor: Eleanor White

Fully Booked

In the novel ‘Postcards’ by E Annie Proulx there are short chapters that intersperse the book titled “What I see”. They are acute observations of life, place, time, and people. This exciting new course will combine the use of the written word as a starting point for revealing how and what we see. Visual and written observations of both the landscape and how we as humans interact with the land, how we leave our mark in and around the wild places, will be our beginning. 

The course will cover mixed media and will visit locations to draw from that have stark contrasts, the busy and bustling harbour and the quiet of the loch and mountain. Each place revealing a different subject that will be explored both with observation and imagination. 
All courses run from 9.30am - 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. All materials and equipment are supplied, with a simple lunch provided daily. It is important to wear old clothes as art is a messy business. Be prepared and dress for the Highland weather, expect sun and rain, four seasons have been experienced in one day! Outdoor, waterproof clothing is essential.
