    Turner and Watercolour: a Summer Painting Course with Tim Wright

    Every Tuesday in August – 10am-1pm – Tickets £250 for all 5 lessons, BOOK HERE

    Join us and learn JMW Turner’s watercolour technique with artist Tim Wright! We will look at Turner’s watercolour technique, his responses to landscape and also, more specifically, his Petworth House interiors.

    The course is formed of 5 lessons, every Tuesday in August (3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st), from 10am to 1pm. Tickets £250 – these include material, refreshments and access to the House and Turner’s English Coasts exhibition. BOOK HERE.

    The course will cover the following elements:

    – We will do a series of exercises to familiarise the student with materials and handling.

    – Experiment with the effects of the medium, particularly how to express qualities of light and colour.

    – Discover what brushes and grounds to use.

    – Learn how to mix colour and tone and how to apply it with a brush or other tool.

    – Setting out your palette: the colours you need.

    – How to use paper and exploit its properties.

    – Look at composition and how to structure a painting: how to edit, what to leave in, what to omit, what detail is essential and what isn’t.

    – What tools and materials you should have in your studio.

    – We will make short studies of the house, its interior and setting in the surrounding landscape. This will lead to some longer, more substantial, pieces.

    By unpicking and analysing Turner’s method and exploring the nature of the medium, the student should acquire a stock of technique and the confidence to paint their own watercolours.

  • HORACE WALPOLE’S CAT – A talk by writer and award-winning broadcaster, Sir Christopher Frayling.

    Doors open at 6.30pm and the talk will begin at 7.30pm

    It then examines how artists have used their imaginations to illustrate the poem, from Richard Bentley's original designs, via William Blake, to Kathleen Hale - she of 'Orlando the Marmalade Cat'.

    Includes the opportunity to see the In Focus display: Goldfish Bowl temporarily on loan from the Derby Collection, and a glass of fizz.

    TUTOR

    Eleanor is a local craftsperson working in green wood and willow. Originally trained as a fine artist, she was initially drawn to textiles, especially patchwork, embroidery and knitting with a particular interest to their historical context. However, after a 20 year career in social housing an interest in natural, sustainable materials developed. She started making baskets about eight years ago following a

    weekend workshop and has been developing her technique since. She has a particular interest in traditional English basketmaking techniques. Carving spoons from greenwood came a few years later but developed really quickly. 

    Eleanor sources much of the wood she uses locally, including her allotment in Twickenham, where she also grows a small amount of willow she uses in her baskets. She sells her work at local markets and fairs as well as online. Take a look at Eleanor’s website for inspiration: www.woodwoolwillow

However, after a 20-year career in social housing an interest in natural, sustainable materials developed. She started making baskets about eight years ago following a weekend workshop and has been developing her technique since. She has an interest in traditional English basketmaking techniques. Carving spoons from greenwood came a few years later but developed quickly. Eleanor sources much of the wood she uses locally, including her allotment in Twickenham, where she also grows a small amount of willow she uses in her baskets. She sells her work at local markets and fairs as well as online.  Take a look at Eleanor’s website for inspiration: www.woodwoolwillow.com

    Mandala (pen and ink) Drawing Day

    The Landmark Summer Art School offers you the opportunity to discover your creative potential. Enjoy a moment of uninterrupted time to develop your art skills with individual tuition and guidance.             

    A mandala is an ancient traditional artform designed to help focus the attention and in some cultures, the spirituality, of the artist. Its roots lie in Eastern religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism.

    In contemporary art, the mandala is a diagram, chart or geometric pattern with the design flowing from the mind of the practitioner. It is a meditative process and although usually geometric, modern mandalas can be expressed in many different ways.

    All levels of ability and experience are welcome.

    Tutor: Marcia Hughes is a renowned local artist and an experienced teacher. Marcia teaches through step-by-step demonstrations and through practical exercise. She is an established watercolourist and Botanical artist and has exhibited at many prestigious venues including Westminster Hall and The Mall Galleries amongst many more.

    Fee:  £70
