Our response to colour is direct and emotional. The natural world is replete with it, we cover our homes in it, our TV screens and devices are a-dazzle with it and we even dress ourselves in it, but many of us don’t actually think that deeply about colour at all. For the artist, however, colour has always represented an especial challenge.

In this practical, five-day course, we will study colour’s rich social and cultural history, its geography and its language. We will also learn how artists in previous centuries found ways to master it, explore our own personal perception of colour and most importantly, develop a meaningful relationship with its enduring

Residential Fees From: £858.   Non Residential: £352
