Melanie Rose is our visiting tutor who teaches Drawing, Painting and Life Drawing for The Granary Studio.
She gives us an introduction :
‘I am a practicing artist specialising in drawing and painting. My current research is about embodied drawing with a particular focus on the figure and place. Alongside my practice I work in both mainstream education as a lecturer and within gallery education specifically with Southampton City Art Gallery and Aspex. I have taught Life Drawing for many years both in mainstream and gallery settings from beginners through to advanced. I have run summer schools in Life Drawing at Southampton City Art Gallery and even run Life Drawing sessions for hen parties in London and in Hampshire
Working collaboratively as well as establishing artist led projects is all a part of my life an artist. I have exhibited widely showing my work in the UK and internationally. This year I am collaborating with film makers Anna Cady and Pauline Thomas on a project called Elemental Dialogues and with the artist Neeta Madahar as well as an ongoing collaboration with an artist based in Shanghai. My studio is situated north of Winchester; for a full resume please visit http://www.melanierose.org.uk/ ‘
