Call for Applications : Turps Art School / Painting Studio Programme

Published by under Art Opportunities


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 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.In September 2012, we are launching a unique opportunity for a select group of painters take up residence in their own dedicated studio space within a landmark new arts complex and embark on a 12 month intensive programme of mentoring, dynamic group seminars, talks and lectures. Culminating in a group exhibition in London in 2013. In this studio context we expect to focus on the specific qualities an artist brings with a view to developing their practice. The course is designed to fulfil a back to basics and broad view of what we believe a solid painting course requires.
