Meriel Gold's DRAWN HOME – LIFE-DRAWING COURSE @ The Art Shop & Chapel |  |  |

An exploration into the nature of creativity – Meriel Gold trained at the Slade and was taught by Oskar Kokoschka and Cecil Collins. Collins’s life drawing classes at the Central School of Art in the 70’s and 80’s were legendry, and Oskar Kokoschka’s School of Seeing set up by him in 1953 in Salzburg Academy of Fine Arts, taught students through the creative process …‘my school does not strive towards technical skills, nor towards photographic imitations of nature and not at all towards abstract art… I want to teach my students the art of vision…’

Meriel’s innate sense of both artists’ teachings is very evident. Seeing past what the mind thinks it knows based on learnt patterns of conditioning, including the desire for results and fear of not getting them, allows for a relaxation back into the creative and intuitive essence of our self, which is just plain being at home as oneself. Using hands, fingers and natural instruments like reeds, quills, brushes, charcoal, chalk, water, music and life models, we touch out on our paper that which touches us in the human form. In truth we touch ‘Being-ness’, which is our true nature.

Booking Essential. All materials provided. Includes lunch & refreshments throughout the day.
