Turps Art School | Applications Open for Painters Studio Programme
Closing Date for Applications | 19th April 2013
Peter Ashton Jones and Marcus Harvey have long held the view that an artist led painting school could flourish in a climate where there is growing disquiet about the quality of painting tuition, inadequate tutorial input and rise in tuition fees on too many established fine art courses.
The Editors feel it is time to begin to respond to this in much the same way that a painting magazine run by practicing painters has fulfilled a need for many painters with a desire for intellectual stimulus and focus in this area.
Painters Studio Programme, London Sept 2013 – August 2014
Applications are now open for this 12 month intensive programme of mentoring, dynamic group seminars, talks and lectures for painters.
Each participant will be provided with approx. 180 -200 sq ft within the Turps Art School Studio with 24 hour access, 7 days a week. Each will receive one on one tutorial sessions with a dedicated mentor and participate in dynamic group seminars with the other course members and staff team.
Uniquely, participants will be actively encouraged to request a number of visits from an extensive group of high profile international painters associated with Turps and a wider UK painting community.
The programme will culminate in a ‘Graduation’ show towards the end of the year in London, and possible touring.
The core programme will be run by a team of artists drawn from the Turps Editorial Board and led by Marcus Harvey and Peter Ashton Jones.
Turps Art School is currently based at V22, Bermondsey. From September 2013 we will be relocated to an exciting new site, also in South East London, SE17. Details to be confirmed shortly sign up to our website at www.turpsbanana.com for updates
