The Camden Town Group were a group of north London artists, who in the early decades of the 20thc were at the forefront of new painting.
Their subject matter was the everyday world that is easily overlooked, yet so full of picture making possibilities.
They were inspired by the newly heightened palette of Post-Impressionism on the continent and by the possibilities offered by photograph for recording and framing views of city and suburb.
During the first two days of the course we will draw and photograph different locations within walking distance of the art school.
With tutor help, over the last two days, you will develop one or more paintings based on your visual information. We will also
Look at the work of various Camden Town Painters including Walter Sickert and Harold Gilman (slides) to help with realising your own ‘Local Landscapes’
Painting by Harold Gilman, ‘House at Letchworth’ 1912

This part-time course is a carefully structured programme written within a framework of observational painting and drawing using the human model. You will be grounded in the skills needed to work from direct observation and will be helped to develop these skills into a personal body of work. The course further aims to help you acquire the perspectives and the sense of context necessary for working independently as an artist.
