GENTLE WINDS, VIOLENT STORMS AND RAGING THUNDERSTORMS,
OR THE AWAKENING, THE BLOSSOMING, THE FRUITS AND THE CALM.
The theme of THE FOUR SEASONS will accompany and inspire this summer course. It is the painterly aspects of the seasons, such as the quality of colour, the rhythm of the surfaces and the language of line, which will be the focus of the course.
IMAGE DEVELOPMENT FROM THE SURFACE
In this workshop, we will deal with questions such as: Can a colour surface tell the story of (a) shimmering summer heat?
IMAGE DEVELOPMENT FROM COLOUR
This week we will look at different aspects of colour and discover ways to develop specific colour palettes.
IMAGE DEVELOPMENT FROM THE LINE
In order to find our own line language, we will be inspired by the different seasons in this painting week.
The three areas of colour, form and line will be explored in targeted exercises and implemented in large-scale, free works. The course participants will be individually guided in their picture construction and encouraged to consider questions of composition. They will work with charcoal, pencil and acrylic paints.
The summer course is open to beginners and advanced students. It provides an insight into the work and teaching methods of the Visual Art School Basel.
