These study days offer an opportunity to develop individual themes and ideas and help you to maintain the momentum of your own practice following the completion of the FDAD. You will be working on your own ideas, at your own pace, in a supported environment, with one-to-one advice from tutors, Kate Boucher and Mark Anstee. Both tutors are experienced in responding to students' needs, across different disciplines and in supporting the development of individual practice.
Kate Boucher is an experienced, enthusiastic and inspirational
tutor who specialises in building students' creative confidence in
a supportive teaching environment. She trained at Chelsea School of
Art and recently gained a Master of Fine Art from West Dean
College. She was awarded a prestigious QEST scholarship, was the
Edward James Foundation Scholar in 2015/16 and winner of the
Valarie Power Prize for Visual Arts. Her dark and evocative
charcoal drawings often have unnaturally tilted horizons, hints of
a double exposure and foregrounds that appear to shift and slip.
Her practice also includes handmade felt and forged metal
structures also created as a response to landscape.
Mark Anstee is an artist specializing in drawing.
Mark studied at Goldsmith's College and gained a MAFA at Brighton University.
He teaches process/concept drawing at Brighton & Kingston University, and to Master cabinet makers.
