Schedule of our classes and prices for 2016


The London School of Painting and Drawing is a venture set up in 2002 by experienced artists and acclaimed tutors from the Royal Society of British Sculptors and the Slade School of Fine Art.

Students will be encouraged to develop ways of representation through the imaginative response to the observed world.  Classes will explore various aspects of proportion and scale, composition, space, light and form.

The London School of Painting and Drawing is unique in not having a 'house style' but instead offers you the rare opportunity of working directly from the model aided by careful, individual tuition designed to encourage and develop your own individual creativity.

All levels of experience welcomed.

LSPD, a School set up by Artists for Artists like you.

Coming up shortly:
Summer School (18th-22nd July 2016)
ONLY £374

Enjoy this unique opportunity to paint from life models at our Summer School this year. Not only will you be able to indulge in our spacious well lit studio and the surrounding grounds but also this year we are going to have an open debate on Cézanne’s ‘The Bathers’, a highly controversial work of art which Tom and Andy are going to answer any questions you have on this work.
