About The Course

10am – 4pm | Oils | November 11th &12th

Robert Dukes studied at Grimsby School of Art followed by the Slade. He paints mostly still-lifes, and transcriptions of other paintings. In addition to solo exhibitions at Browse and Darby (2005, 2008 and 2011) he features regularly in the RA Summer Show. He also lectures at The National Gallery.

This course will be a fantastic opportunity to gain knowledge from a highly regarded and incredibly talented practicing artist.

Students will be encouraged to draw with pencil for the first 45 minutes to “get their eye in” and as a way of deciding on the composition of their painting. The rest of the two days will be spent working on a painting of the model’s head. Students will be asked to consider how the head relates to its surroundings. Individual tuition will be given with an emphasis on colour mixing and understanding tonal relationships.

The course will take place in the well equipped studio at our London HQ Trinity Buoy Wharf, students will enjoy lots of natural light and views of the Thames.

Pay full amount or deposit.

Balance due no later than six weeks before the course starts. See Terms and Conditions for full details.

About The Venue

Trinity Buoy Wharf

‘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.
