Tutor: Eleanor White
Course Fee: £360
Fully Booked!

A chance to explore Ullapool and the surrounding coastline through 5 days of drawing and painting on both paper and canvas. The aim will be to build a series of work that relates to the diversity of the landscape which surrounds giving scope for unique and individual imagery.

The course will begin by gathering drawings from the wide open landscape in order to experience the weather, nature and the atmosphere of place these drawings will work in series, each relating to the other.  Expressive drawing combined with intense observation will lead the way enabling students to discover what interests them most.

From this the course will develop on to working on canvas with colour and surface texture focusing on the choice of theme the series of work will take. The final outcome will be a series of canvases that have the essence of the west coast at the heart of their exploration.

As for all of our courses, all of the materials will be provided for the course along with 3 canvases @16x16 inch, all you have to do is come along with a spirit of adventure, old outdoor clothes and a sense of humour!

All summer school 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.
