Workshops And Short Courses

We run Workshops and Short Courses as well as our One Year Portrait Painting Program. The workshops and courses are based on traditional art techniques.  Our Art Classes are aimed at helping artists to develop their skills and we cover all aspects of Traditional Art from basic drawing to glazing techniques.

Beginners and Experienced people are welcome. Louis Smith our principle teacher believes that understanding is key to learning the principles taught by the academy. His teaching method is to lead from the front by demonstrating each step in front of the class and helping the students with their work. Louis Smith studied Classical Art in Florence and has exhibited his work in the BP Portrait Award and Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
