The landscape geology, archaeology, forms and features of the Sussex Downs present challenges and stimuli that are both visual and non-visual: spatial, historical and even metaphysical. Using media of your choice you will be drawing and painting outdoors and in the studio, working towards a creative compositional interpretation, developing ideas, and technical and perceptual skills.
