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.
