Falmouth School of Art Intensives – Summer 2017 in Pictures

Last week we held our Falmouth School of Art Summer Intensives 2017.  Three strands took place this year; abstract painting, figure painting and observational drawing.

We had another really successful year packed full of fantastic work by a great group of practitioners.  We really enjoyed hosting this again and please do take a look at the wide range of work produced in the gallery below.

Falmouth School of Art Intensives 2016 – In Pictures

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.

Abstract 15

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!

Falmouth School of Art Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Simon Averill, is exhibiting at Anima-Mundi in St. Ives from 10 June.

Simon has lectured at Falmouth since 1989, and has exhibited his work widely in selected exhibitions in the UK and internationally.

“My paintings are a response to time spent within nature; I’m drawn to the commonplace, the unnoticed. I try to capture the fleeting and the transitory; the effect of light – not only how it appears, but also how it behaves…I am also interested in the psychology of decision making within the creative process and my work investigates the relationship between spontaneity and control. My paintings allow these seemingly disparate ideas to co-exist side by side.”

Next month, Simon with be co-delivering Falmouth School of Art’s Abstract Painting Summer Intensives.

Also showing, on the top floors of the gallery, is artist Youki Hirakawa‘s ‘Secret Fire’.

What last year’s Intensives participants say:

“This was a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable week. I very much enjoyed and benefited 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”.

Poster

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’.
