Our Studios offer a diverse range of stimulating, artist-led courses in a friendly and creative environment. Our aim is to encourage students of develop confidence in their own artistic abilities and ideas, helping them start to further their own artistic practice.
Our courses are attended by people of all levels of ability, from independently practicing artists to complete beginners. This allows us to cultivate a unique space that is both innovative and supportive where students harbour a genuine drive to produce quality artworks and realise their individual outcomes. In this way we are able to connect to a wider artistic community through our regular exhibitions and further establish ourselves as a new and exciting centre for artistic practice.
We offer a wide range of courses comprising of both traditional and contemporary approaches. At Sussex Art and Print Studios work is focused in two dimensions and involves painting, drawing and printmaking techniques such as portrait, still life, life drawing, gum arabic transfer printing, etched lino Printing as well as classic collograph and etching processes. We offer a strong figurative tradition in the Drawing, Painting and Sculpture Studios that can be used as a foundation for students to move on into other artistic avenues, or that can be developed as an end in itself to produce work within a figurative genre. At Sussex Sculpture Studios we continue to cater for all levels of experience and ability in a variety of media including wood, ceramics, stone, ciment fondue, plaster and resin.
Students are encouraged to consider a number of start points such as working directly from the model, on Figurative Sculpture or Portrait Head courses to developing individual projects on the Free Form course. We aim to continue to work with professional artists in Sussex to expand the range and quality of our art courses ensuring that each academic year will differ from the previous with the addition of interesting and original courses encompassing both 2D and 3D art practice.
