Join British painter and Royal Society of British Artists member Sarah Spackman for this 4-week exploration of color! Discover ways that color can create form within a painting and learn to develop your own color mixing abilities, as well as your understanding of the way color works. Each week Sarah will introduce a new theme and guide students through exercises to help them develop their knowledge of color and its possibilities. The practical element will be a large part of the course, as it is the best way to understand what happens when you add one color to another! Still-life paintings by other artists will be looked at and discussed to understand how color has been used to create form.The aim of the course is for students to use color with more knowledge and confidence in their work. Expect to have lots of personal encouragement from the instructor.

Sarah Spackman is a contemporary figurative artist particularly well known for her still life oil paintings. She works from a studio in Oxford that was once a punt building workshop.Strength of drawing and the delicate and subtle use of colour are two of the main qualities recognised in her work. Her practise focuses on the principle that good drawing is the basis of good painting and that colour should be used to enhance the organisation and definition of observed space and form. Sarah works in a considered way, with close observation. Her paintings are quiet in their presence but nonetheless powerful and engaging to the viewer. These are paintings that take a close look at things around us, take the object out of the ordinary and make the viewer look again.

Sarah trained at Byam Shaw School of Art, London and graduated from Camberwell School of art in 1981. She was elected as a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 2019, and a member of the Small Paintings Group in 2021. Sarah’s work is in many private collections world wide as well as the collection of the Allied Irish Bank. Her work has also been selected for the Jerwood Drawing Competition , the NEAC, the ROI, the RBA and the Discerning Eye Exhibitions. Sarah exhibits regularly with several galleries throughout the
