Turps Editors had long held the view that an artist led painting programme, a supported studio, could flourish in a climate where there is growing disquiet about the quality of painting tuition, inadequate tutorial input and isolation in traditional studio set ups.
It was 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.
turps studio programme provides a dynamic structure of: mentoring, peerled learning, talks and visitors within an open studio environment.
Stimulating converstation and debate, through discourse and practice. Advancing individual development during and intensive and supported one year programme.
turps correspondence course is a one to one responsive year long programme of online mentoring. Offering an opportunity to reconnect and reinvigorate participants practice, on an international platform.
Applications are now open for September 2015 on both the Correspondence and Studio Programmes. For information on how to apply please click the links below:
