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

TURPS Banana magazine is delighted to announce the relocation and reopening of its celebrated art school this September.


Established in 2012 by Marcus Harvey and Peter Ashton Jones, the TURPS Art School is unique in that it is wholly artist-led, totally independent and, most important of all, focusses exclusively on painting.
Marcus Harvey states: “Towards the end of 2013 we began the process of relocating the studio based…

Taplow

In the Spring of 2013 it became clear Turps Studio in Bermondsey was going to have to relocate. Interest in the Turps programmes was building and the 2012/13 painters were working their way to an exciting conclusion of the inaugural year. Time was against us and we needed to find a site that could offer a large enough single space for the open studio model the programme is based on.

Towards the end of the Summer our search for a space settled on part of a larger project to reinv…
