HODLER’S DYNAMIC FIGURES

Join us for a three day practical painting course inspired by the Barber’s loan of the powerful realist work ‘The Woodcutter’ by Ferdinand Hodler. 

Be informed by Hodler’s dramatic composition, style and subject and work from a clothed model to develop drawings and a final painted image in acrylic.  An inspiring opportunity to develop a striking and bold piece of work that symbolises the work ethic.

Led by artist tutor Adrian Clamp.
