BACON’S HUMANS

Adult Painting Workshop

Enjoy a three-day oil painting course responding to the work of seminal British painter Francis Bacon, led by artist tutor Adrian Clamp. Inspired by the 1959 work Two Figures in a Room, learn about Bacon’s preoccupation with the human condition and the unique language he created when painting the human form.

Use photos and mixed-media sources to inform your preliminary sketches before painting your own canvas using gestural, energetic painting techniques in the style of Bacon.
