The figure will be the point of departure for exploration of pictorial structure. We will walk the line between accuracy and abstraction in our search. This line will lead us to create an image in the simplest terms: a shape and a colour made of paint. (Not a head or a leg). We will generate permutations through simplification and abstraction. This rigorous and wide-ranging analysis of the motif will help us see through and around the meaning of things to grasp relationships between objects and space. Mediums will include graphite, ink, acrylic or oil paint, and collage.

‘Great tutors, friendly hosts and fab locations, and everytime I go I meet a bunch of lovely new friends. I cannot recommend The New School of Art enough. Keep up the great work and Thank you.’ – Abigail 2017
Our London HQ at Trinity Buoy Wharf is the School’s permanent home, forming part of the creative quarter of London’s Docklands. The small but perfectly formed first floor studio overlooks the Thames and across to the Millennium Dome, with far reaching views and surrounded by a lively creative community.
With plenty of natural light our well equipped studio is a wonderful place to paint in and with lots of outside space this location works well for plein air painting also.
