The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.
This exciting, creative week will offer students the opportunity to create a personal visual response to the beautiful island of Tanera Mor through drawing, painting and printmaking. Initial studies will encourage students to engage with their own sense of Tanera - this might be the wider landscape, the abundant wildlife or the role of man in the environment. Playing with scale, composition and tone will be looked at as methods of creating unique artworks which give a sense of mood and narrative. A variety of artists will be used as inspiration including Norman Adams, Mary Newcombe and John Piper. Drawing will be used to inform and develop prints and mixed media pieces to conclude a week of intensive response to place.
