This February, London Fine Art Studios are holding an exhibition for tutors and de Laszlo scholars with the Gallery at Green & Stone . Featuring the work of students from London Fine Art Studios past and present, this is an exciting exhibition showcases the drawing and painting skills developed at the Studios.
As part of the two-week exhibition, we are running a workshop and demonstration programme, including painting demonstrations, life drawing classes, drawing workshops, and portrait workshops. You can sign up for these classes through this link – https://londonfineartstudios.com/upcoming-events/.
Words from founder Ann Witheridge:
“We are delighted to be hosting this exhibition with Green & Stone, who have supported many of our artists in previous exhibitions. The success of the Studios is thanks to our amazing community of models, students and fellow artists who come together to learn, paint, and share in both our artistic frustrations and triumphs. We are very grateful to the de Laszlo Foundation whose encouragement and backing has given confidence to so many artists.”
This exhibition is the first of its kind, bringing together work by alumni, tutors, and de Laszlo scholars, who have studied at London Fine Art Studios over the last ten years.
London Fine Art Studios champions the traditional craft of drawing and painting, and we hope that this exhibition highlights the multitude of possibilities that an academic art education allows. The paintings showcased here demonstrate these possibilities spectacularly – all the artists have trained with us, according to the atelier tradition, yet you’ll find a wide variety of styles and works. Continuing a tradition established by the European Masters, our artists develop a firm understanding of the principles of drawing and painting, providing the foundation whereby they can grow in their own direction. This exhibition may indeed challenge preconceived notions of atelier art, presenting a new contemporary, yet classical style that stems from a tradition very much alive.
After several years of support from the de Laszlo Foundation, we wanted to provide the opportunity for our artists to exhibit their work, and thanks to our friends at The Gallery at Green & Stone, they are able to do so in a wonderful location, alongside fellow artists from the LFAS community. The works displayed here are a mixture of paintings made during the artist’s studies at the studio and from their own practice.
