Tuesday Morning Studio (Painting/Drawing)
Ongoing class for intermediate & advanced students
Tuesday Morning Studio: Tutor Adriane Strampp
Level: Intermediate and advanced
Our ongoing classes provide a supportive and friendly studio environment for students to build confidence and develop their practice with guidance and feedback from their tutor.
This class is aimed at students wanting to explore their own aesthetic interests and direction, whilst concentrating on developing painting and/or drawing skills, techniques and studio practice to make the best work they can with close tutorial support.
Students are encouraged to bring in their own preparatory material to work from, or to set up individual studio-based enquiries from our large supply of props and reference material. Traditional and contemporary painting and drawing techniques are discussed, and optional exercises are available to assist in furthering skills and expanding students practice. Tutors work with each student individually throughout the class.
This class is open to students who wish to draw or paint, painting students must have already completed our beginners course or already have some previous oil painting experience. It is also suitable for artists working in isolation who seek the company of other artists for support and encouragement.
There is a great sense of community in our ongoing classes and many students return year after year. Students may join at any time if a place is available, bookings of 4 and 8-week blocks are available online. Materials storage space is available at the studio for ongoing students. Students are to expected to bring their own materials, or may hire or purchase a kit at the studio. A full materials list can be found here. This class is not suitable for beginners.
