South Worcester College School of Arts Summer School Malvern

THE GARDENS GALLERY Montpellier Gardens, Montpellier Cheltenham  

18 & 19 August 2011



Interested in hiring the gallery but would like to find someone to share the costs ? ² the Gallery has a Hire Share arrangement whereby interested artists/ceramicists etc are listed and compatible ones are linked-­up and put in touch with one another.

10am ² 4.30pm

Two spare places are available for this course. Painters of the human form can benefit enormously from studying the same form in 3 dimensions. Working from a live model you will increase your understanding of basic anatomy and of the amazing flexibility of the human form and the expressiveness of the face. Clay is a highly malleable, infinitely flexible medium which means that you can correct and refine the figure as your 3D grasp expands. When you return to painting you will find that you have a new insight into the human form. Ref : MSUN 146 Price : £100 College Contact : 01684 565351 Transport is available from Cheltenham. If interested contact Colin Doughty after 9 August
