What to expect

We are delighted that Agnes Treherne has agreed to run this workshop with us. Agnes is a wonderful artist and teacher and it promises to be an exciting and inspiring course. To find out more about Agnes look on our tutors page and check out her website. Agnes writes: Poetry of Place This is a course where you will be encouraged to express your own vision of the landscape. We will look at work by painters and poets who have placed landscape at the heart of their enquiry. From the Early Renaissance to the present; the breadth and vision of these examples will help heighten our sensitivity to the particularness of place, and encourage the articulation of a personal vision. These visionary stances will be tempered by formal considerations; participants will be lead through a series of drawing exercises within the landscape, to aid and inform a sustained work. The course will be underpinned by drawing from observation, but an imaginative element will also be encouraged, drawing on the rich association between literature and landscape within the British Isles. Please bring suitable clothing and footwear for being outdoors some of the time.
