Programme Overview

Please note that our next programme of courses for Spring-Summer 2018 will be available from March 2018.


This class started on the first week of October. It is now too late to join it.

The focus of this course is to build technique and develop a wide range of skills while exploring the drawing and painting process. Still life will be the main component of the course but you will have the opportunity to work directly from the nude model, one class each term. Students will be encouraged to experiment with materials and work towards developing an individual approach. More experienced students will be encouraged to challenge old habits, try new approaches and re-assess their working process.

Group discussion, demonstrations and individual direction will aim to help you examine the interaction of ideas, subject matter and expression.
