Last week we held the Falmouth School of Art Intensives in Abstract Painting and Figure Painting.
These focused five-day courses for artists and practitioners were delivered by specialist tutors Mark Surridge, Simon Averill, Ashley Hold and Jesse Leroy Smith.
During the week alongside expert one-to-one tuition, studio tutorials, group discussions and individually allocated studio spaces, participants also enjoyed key events including an inspiring guest lecture by artist Naomi Frears, a social dinner for a much needed mid-week break, Cornish cream teas in the sunshine, and to round of the week in style, participants showcased their work together in a group exhibition.
Immediate feedback from participants has been extremely positive; comments include, “I had such a fantastic week and I was so sad to leave. I met a brilliant group of people, I received the highest level of tuition (which I’m sure will resonate through my work in the future) and I was made to feel incredibly welcome by all the staff.”
The pictures here highlight the incredibly high quality of work produced by participants; we can’t wait to start planning for next year!
