Welcome to Quay Arts 10th annual Summer School programme, an opportunity for you to spend an intensive few days discovering or rediscovering the joy of painting, drawing or making, across a broad choice of courses.
Observation, interpretation, manipulation of materials, together with energy, inventiveness, questioning and play - all this and more add up to 2012's Life Drawing Summer School. From sketchbook to larger-than-life, and pencil to mixed media, a diversity of materials and approaches will challenge your perception of drawing from the life model. Suitable for all levels of ability.
Large quality paper is provided. Please bring a roll of lining paper, plus anything else you may care to work on. Participants are also encouraged to bring with them any relevant drawing and painting materials which may include: charcoal, pencils, conte crayons, erasers, inks, pens, brushes (think big), rollers, acrylics, emulsion, masking tape, bulldog clips, kitchen roll (it can get messy) and scissors.
We are celebrating Quay Arts 10th Summer School by offering our course students an exciting opportunity to showcase the work they create, in a special exhibition in our Rope Store Gallery. This experimental exhibition, curated by our Exhibitions Organiser, will grow and evolve throughout August as each Summer School course comes to an end. The opportunity to exhibit is entirely optional for students.
Roger Butler is a sculptor who has exhibited in London and southern galleries. He has a BA in Fine Art from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design and an MA in Sculpture from the Winchester School of Art. Roger has many years of experience in running Life Drawing classes and his regular classes at Quay Arts are a highly successful feature of our ongoing programme.
