course overview

Risk-taking and experimentation have always been a vital part of making art. This advanced painting course is for those who have an established art practice and are seeking to expand all aspects of their work. Roger Crawford works individually with students to create and extend the formal and aesthetic understanding of their work. As an experienced artist and educator, he will mentor you to further the context of your work and to find new forms of practice. This masterclass is a time to reassess and evaluate the very nature of your work, and to discard old methodologies and procedures in your practice that may have been limiting your progress. It will provide you with a way forward and a beginning for renewal in your artwork. Strategies for continuing your work after finishing the course will be provided so that a clear path can be maintained beyond the course framework.

Lecturer profile

Roger Crawford translates the objective world into powerful reductive paintings and drawings. An experienced artist, he is represented by Watters Gallery in Sydney, where he has had many solo exhibitions over 30 years. Roger is a longstanding staff member of the National Art School, lecturing in the drawing and painting departments. Roger states: “I believe in process and what it gives us – the notion of time itself as the function of art.”
