Curs a càrrec de Michael Lawton

En aquest curs els alumnes estudiaran i practicaran diferents maneres de pintar incloent paisatges, retrats, natures mortes, abstractes, així com començar a pensar en el tipus de pintor que els agradaria ser. Cada tema inclourà una breu introducció al mètode utilitzant artistes britànics com a exemple i en el context històric-artístic. Aquests artistes son canònics i contemporanis, i inclouran artistes como Turner, Constable, Hogarth, David Hockney, Patrick Heron, Chantal Joffe i Chris Ofili.

El material és a càrrec de l’alumne. El professor podrà donar les indicacions i recomanacions oportunes.

Es tracta d’un curs pràctic, impartit en anglès, per un artista britànic resident a Hangar, Barcelona.
