THE MASTER CLASSES
Theoretical Practice & The Ideology of Traditional Art : Introducing the student to an African construct in presenting the aesthetics of the human form. This course will encourage the student to enquire about the form from a traditional and mythological view point. The course will be followed by a public debate for artists, course participants and the public (details of the open debate to follow) .
Figurative Drawing : The course offers an introduction into the rudimentaries of figure construction, examining proportion and expression of the form.
Motive for Expression : This course will assist students to explore concepts and themes. It will enable them to develop their own body of work, and help them to create a dialogue between the art and their audience.
