This programme is focused on the discipline of observational drawing and painting. It is skills-based and experiential; we shift between 2D and 3D to anchor the programme in material reality. When we paint landscapes we are engaging with actual landforms so we work from photographs but we also construct our own landscapes from clay, cardboard and assemblage materials then make paintings of our constructions, learning traditional painting tactics in the process. We then progress to painting actual landscapes plein air: using the land around the Community Centre art room and the nearby Monte Cecelia Park site, depending on the weather and the light.
