Post-Industrial Scenes

Adult Painting Course

Be inspired by George Bellows’s ‘Men at the Docks. In this exciting three-day course, you’ll create a powerful work in response to the post-industrial urban landscape, incorporating the human figure as an active element.

Delivered by artist-tutor Adrian Clamp, day one will see you drawing on location in central Birmingham. Two days in the studio follow, working from your drawings and photographs to create a painting in acrylics.
