course overview

Do you have an established art practice and are you seeking to expand your understanding of the aesthetic, compositional and conceptual aspects of your work? Idris Murphy guides you to develop and challenge the formal aspects of your painting, with reference to the visual language of contemporary landscape painting. The course is suitable for students with prior painting experience wishing to evaluate their work with an experienced artist and educator who will mentor you to further the context of your work and find exciting new forms of practice.  Students are encouraged to bring in artworks already in progress to revaluate, begin new paintings from photographs or drawings, and bring examples from books, magazines and websites of artists of interest and influence. Idris presents brief talks that reference his own works and his vast collection of artists’ books. The course will include one-to-one mentoring as well as group critiques and discussions.
