Every Friday, 10 sessions, £80
From 29 September 2017 to 1 December 2017, 6pm – 8.30pm
Great films, like great paintings, are rich resources for visual ideas. The artistic vision of Eisenstein, Satyajit Ray, Bergman and Kurosawa is comparable to that of the great artists of the twentieth century. Exploring a film through drawing, the way we might explore a Rubens or Poussin, gives us the opportunity to see through those great filmmakers’ eyes. Each week a different film will be shown in its entirety, with students drawing either from stills in the studio or from the film in motion. The course will be led by three different artists, each with their own take on drawing from film. (Artist led but untutored) £80 for ten sessions
Films scheduled to be shown throughout the term will include:
Murnau’s Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, 1927; Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Oedipus Rex, 1967; Gregori Kosintsev’s Hamlet, 1964; Max Ophuls’ Letter from an Unknown Woman, 1948; Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, 2013; and Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris, 1972.
