The Falmouth School of Art is pleased to announce a cluster of focused five-day Intensives delivered by its specialist tutors. Intensive courses in Abstract Painting, Figure Painting and Drawing offer practicing visual artists and art educators an opportunity to make a step change in their work this summer.
Supported by daily one-to-one input from the School’s expert tutors – including some of Cornwall’s leading artists – participants can take part in studio tutorials, group discussions and practical sessions. Working alongside other practitioners in well-appointed studios and workshops in a unique subtropical garden setting, all conveniently close to Falmouth’s vibrant town centre and glorious beaches – we feel there can’t be a better place for concentrated creative activity.
Dr. Ginny Button, Director of the Falmouth School of Art, comments: ‘The School of Art is hugely popular with our students – understandably so, thanks to its unique combination of beautiful location, great facilities, inspiring legacy, pedagogic excellence and friendly, supportive atmosphere. I’m delighted to be able to open up our facilities to practitioners who want to further develop their work and their professional networks too’.
Former Intensives students’ testimonials:
“This was a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable week. I very much enjoyed and benefitted from talking to the tutors. I came away from this feeling like I had undertaken an MA in a week”.
“The course gave me the time and space to really think through making. This resulted in my work shifting and improving quite radically in five days…and allowed me to develop strategies to tie together various strands into my work more successfully”.
“It has helped me put my work into a contemporary context, helped me focus my ideas and practice and given me a boost of energy and inspiration”.
