Drawn to Nature Drawing Course
 
     
Drawn to Nature
Drawing and mixed media inspired by natural history
with Nik Pollard RCA
 
Course Outline:

Rabley Drawing Centre is delighted to announce a 3 day course studying the flora and fauna of surrounding hedgerows, woodlands, meadows and pond, led by artist/naturalist Nik Pollard RCA. The focus of the course will be on painting and drawing in the field, complimented by the opportunity to plan and develop work in the well-equipped drawing and print studio.

With sessions tailored to the individual, group discussions and demonstrations, participants will enjoy 3 days immersed in nature. They will develop personal ways of working by playing with composition, exploring mark-making and discovering new ways of interpreting.

The course is suitable for beginners and for those with experience. You will receive individual and group tuition.

 
About the Artist:

Nik Pollard’s work stems from a passion for the natural world and is generated from sustained, direct observation. He makes drawings and paintings in the field and develops ideas in the studio.

A period of dedicated study at single or related locations is a necessary part of Nik’s process. He makes repeated visits to gain familiarity with an area. He builds a knowledge and understanding of the rhythms and characteristics particular to a place and its inhabitants during that time.

Nik explores different ways of working, developing a visual language that will enable him to interpret what he has seen, felt and experienced. Working with a range of mediums, he focuses on the essential aspects of what it is he wants to say, whether it is responding to an instance or exploring a narrative.
