Enjoy a whistle-stop tour through all the materials used on our full-time courses for a taste of atelier life. The Easter School is the perfect introduction to atelier study. Based in our central London studio, you will enjoy the same teaching as our full-time Foundation and Diploma students.

The course also begins with expert guidance for those new to the sight-size method.The course is suitable for beginners and professional artists alike. Due to the unique nature of the atelier method students of all levels of experience are able to work alongside each other while receiving individual critiques and feedback.

In week one you will work exclusively in the figure room producing ten three-hour drawings or paintings, with a different pose being set each day. In the morning you will work in pencil to focus on proportion, gesture, body type, shadow shape with good variety and quality of line. In the afternoon you will work from the same pose as the morning session but trying a different medium every day from the full-time course: charcoal, charcoal and chalk, raw umber wipe out, monochrome oil painting and Zorn palette oil painting.

In week two you will mirror the work of the full-time students by spending half the day in the figure room and half the day in the cast room. In the mornings you will work on one drawing over the five sessions of the figure in whichever material you most enjoyed from the first week. Likewise in the afternoons you will work from a simple cast in your preferred medium. There is also the option of working on a Bargue copy, the first exercise of the curriculum, but students should not expect to finish such a drawing in the five sessions.

We have a single week option available for those unable to attend for the full two weeks. If attending week two only the student’s medium choice would be limited to pencil or charcoal.
