The London School of Painting and Drawing is a venture set up in 2002 by experienced artists and acclaimed tutors from the Royal Society of British Sculptors and the Slade School of Fine Art.
Students will be encouraged to develop ways of representation through the imaginative response to the observed world. Classes will explore various aspects of proportion and scale, composition, space, light and form.
The London School of Painting and Drawing is unique in not having a 'house style' but instead offers you the rare opportunity of working directly from the model aided by careful, individual tuition designed to encourage and develop your own individual creativity.
All levels of experience welcomed.
LSPD, a School set up by Artists for Artists like you.
Enjoy this unique opportunity to paint from life models at our Summer School this year. Not only will you be able to indulge in our spacious well lit studio and the surrounding grounds but also this year we are going to have an open debate on Cézanne’s ‘The Bathers’, a highly controversial work of art which Tom and Andy are going to answer any questions you have on this work.
Book early to guarantee your place. Please contact Zuzanna on 020 7240 3436 for further details or should you like to book your place.
As is our philosophy & inspiration - 'Looking at the Old Masters to
make something New' - we will be referring to the once in a lifetime exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery, 'Russia and the Arts: The Age of Tolstoy and Tchaikovsky'.
Highlighting the influence of Europe, particularly the French Impressionists & Post-Impressionists via the influential Russian collectors & patrons.
A slide talk as normal will begin our day by both Andy & Tom highlighting aspects for inspiration.The day then continues with students painting directly from the life model from either one or two model set ups.
*New beginners will always be given a basic colour talk during the first half of the morning.
