This artist-as-mentor course is for students with prior painting experience who want to develop their practice under the guidance of a professional artist in a supportive studio environment with other painters. Nick Collerson addresses your painting concerns, particularly those to do with drawing, compositional devices, colour-mixing and paint application. In addition to practical problems, he workshops your ideas and projects and discusses historical and theoretical aspects of painting. This is a great opportunity to expand your practice and reassess your artwork, with Nick offering his extensive experience and encouraging you to develop your own style, themes and vision. Intensive one-to-one teaching is supported by group critiques and conversations aimed at encouraging students to deepen their understanding of painting both conceptually and as part of rigorous studio practice.
