TURPS ART SCHOOL

3a,10a -13a Taplow, Thurlow Street, London, SE17 2UQ (directions here)

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.

In 2012 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 conversation and debate, through discourse and practice. Advancing individual development during an 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.

turps surgeries are an opportunity for painters to access individual and group tutorials at turps studios. Discussion and debate in a small intensive crit environment led by turps mentoring painters. For more details sign up to our mailing list or email info@turpsbanana.com
