In the 1920s artist Christopher Wood visited St Ives, a key chapter in a young artists dedication to finding a new way of painting. The meeting between Wood, Ben Nicholson and Alfred Wallis was as significant to them as African art was to Picasso. Liberating and game changing. It gave them permission to discard horizon lines and flatten space. Significant discoveries that would pave the way to British modernism.

Many of our courses use Still Life to shape students understanding of composition, shape and colour palette.

In The Art of Keeping it Simple you will look at how to abstract yourself from the subject, to let go of the detail and avoid its distraction. William Scott once said: ‘I want to paint what I see, but never immediately. That is why I paint from memory’.

The Art of Keeping it Simple, 17 - 20 October
