About Your Tutor

KATE DUNN

Having undergone a classical training in Italy, Kate’s practice looks at the integration of historical and contemporary languages of painting.

Kate is interested in the internal archive that is accessed when looking at a piece of art. Her work uses historical structures, such as the altarpiece panel and combines them with the fluid and gestural qualities of paint. The core intention of her work is to create undefined images that will be figured in the mind of the viewer.

This course is designed for students who have either completed our ‘Drawing for Beginners’ course or already have some experience of drawing, and want to take their skills to the next level. Over the course, students will explore drawing from observation, memory and imagination, thereby developing a deeper understanding of drawing and greatly enhancing drawing skills. Each week we focus on a particular aspect of drawing. Starting with measurement and explore this in different contexts, so that students will gain confidence in drawing a wide variety of subjects including still life, life models, and urban landscape. Through trying different approaches and materials, students will begin to develop a ‘visual vocabulary’ of drawing. There will be opportunities to work both, inside and outside the studio, and in museums and galleries.
