Summer Term 2018
Summer Term makes the most of the city and its green spaces moving from spring into high summer. A number of new courses have been added to the programme and some existing ones developed or reimagined, with an emphasis on five-week courses for the summer period. New for this term is The Drawing Development Summer Programme for Public Programme students who want to progress their practice in an intensive, structured course. Running as part of the Shoreditch Programme, Drawing in the Park is a sustained study of park life and landscape from Hampstead Heath to Battersea Park whilst on Drawing London’s River: From Hammersmith to the Isle of Dogs, students will embark on a drawing exploration of London following its river and canals. In Drawing and Movement students will learn to see the inner rhythms of the body in action to create drawings that are the work of the eye and the hand in the instant of seeing. An exotic nature table will form the focus of new 5-week course, Drawn from Nature: the Exotic; from Birds-of-Paradise feathers to whale’s teeth, with reference to Blake, Ruskin and Dürer. Drawing the Graphic Novel 2 also returns to the Shoreditch programme on a Friday evening. On the Central programme run from our Oxford Street studios, Model in the Landscape will turn the life class on its head, taking the model out of the studio and into London’s organic landscapes and outdoor spaces, a 5-week course for this summer. New to Central is Drawing Comics and Graphic Novels 2, designed to offer students a deeper understanding of visual storytelling. On a Saturday, Sculpture: Painters in the Third Dimension is a course that can assist both painters, sculptors and people who draw, looking at the dramatic relationship between painters and their use of sculpture.
