  • WORKSHOP at West Dean College

    19 to 21 January 2024

    Contemporary oil painting from an ancestral photograph

    Using your own family photographs, you will use exciting explorations in colour and composition to recreate cherished figures and faces from your past through drawing exercises, leading to an oil painting on canvas. The inspirational environment of West Dean College is a special experience and I can promise a memorable weekend!

    Sign up to my mailing list below to be informed of the next in-person and online courses.

    WORKSHOP at West Dean College
  • Online Workshop with Winslow Art Centre

    4 Wednesdays, February 28- March 20 2024

    In this course we will be working from found imagery to create original oil paintings. Many artists use photography as their primary source, and in these classes we will consider how they have approached this and how we can mine the vast archive of C20th imagery in photography and film to inspire our own work.

    We’ll approach color and composition in our own work by learning from the masterworks of other artists, both contemporary and historical.  There will be time in each session devoted to learning from other painters who use photography and film, and we will consider both the choosing of powerful imagery and the interpretation of it using colour, composition and brushwork.

    Date: Wednesdays, February 28-March 20, 2024

    Time: 9:30 AM-12:00 PM Pacific Time, 12:30-3:00 PM Eastern Time, 5:30-8:00 PM London Time
    Level: All
    Medium: Oil or acrylic

  • The Unfinished Portrait - Workshop with Draw Brighton

    23rd & 24th March 2024

    In person portrait workshop with the fabulous Draw Brighton, in central Brighton, with a live model.

     “We are delighted to welcome artist and tutor Amy Dury to the Draw studios for this inspiring weekend of creativity and painting.  Discover the art of the unfinished portrait – instead of chasing perfection, we celebrate the allure of incompleteness.  Dive into a creative journey where the magic lies in the process, not the final product.  We will look at techniques used by renowned artists who intentionally left their portraits incomplete. Learn the power of suggestion and explore personal interpretation. ”
