This course is a packed ten week investigation into all aspects of composition in painting. The course is developed around four overarching themes – positioning and cropping; layering and collage; harmony and balance; and painting in a digital age – each lasting two weeks, which will be explored through subjects such as the figure, landscape, abstraction, and media, and inspired by through looking at and discussing a wide range of paintings and their contexts. Every two weeks, we introduce the theme through a morning gallery visit or studio discussion on selected paintings to investigate specific compositional aspects and themes, followed by sketching / gathering images and ideas. The class then discusses and plans the resulting painting(s), which will then be completed the following week. Whilst the course is structured to offer a broad view of composition, students will be encouraged to incorporate their particular interests, to ultimately produce paintings that explore different aspects of composition and are experimental, but also feed in to each student’s own art practice.

Alison Hand holds an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art and is a published writer on art and architecture. She has exhibited in Germany, Hong Kong, London and across the UK, and has also curated a number of shows.
