Summer School at londonprintstudio
Our summer schools this year are designed to help artists to develop their skills to a high level, with tutoring and support from our studio co-ordinator Darren van der Merwe. Each school runs for four consecutive days (from Tuesday to Friday) with 6 hours studio time per day (10.30 – 5.30 with an hour for lunch). The programmes are ideal for artists wanting to work on a new project with skilled professional support, or to gain skills in a new medium. They are also an opportunity for artists living outside the UK to work in a friendly professional London studio. Honorary studio membership to the end of August 2016 is included in the price so that participants can use the studio on the same terms as members.
