Contemporary Drawing and Painting Courses
Summer into Autumn
Summer seems to pass so quickly, but Autumn is equally wonderful and brings an abundance of new beginnings, with a change of pace and mood. There are always good things to look forward to in September at the Seawhite Studio and this year is no exception with our exciting short courses programme and some inspiring exhibitions featuring both students and tutors. So with August in full swing we are busy with preparation to ensure everything is top notch for our students.
With Autumn around the corner its always worth booking your place on our short courses as soon as possible as they are very popular. Featured below are two of our wonderful September courses and you can book now by simply clicking the title of each course which will take you to the registration page.

We are very excited about our new show PRIME, taking place in the Atrium Gallery at the Seawhite Studio and opening on September 16th. This exhibition brings you the best of Seawhite Studio, featuring the work of current and former students, who are creating art at a level which reflects their great talent, learning and experience.

Atrium Gallery, Emily Ball at Seawhite Studios
16th September 2017 - 16th February 2018
This is an exhibition of four woman painters - Juliet Robertson, Jane Grinling, Jacky Bellamy and Philippa Paterson. All of whom have won the NOA Exhibition over the past few years and are either current or former students at the Seawhite Studio.
Each artist is at a point in their careers where they have truly found their own voice. Certainly all four artist’s work contains an element of autobiography – whether that is Jane’s design background, Philippa’s exploration of feminism, Jacky’s description of family relationships or Juliet’s observations of her life and surroundings - but it’s more than that. This show is about standing on your own feet as an artist, away from the safety net of the tutors and regular classes attended. Equally all 4 artists, all highlight the essential role that Emily Ball, the other tutors and fellow students have played in developing their painting practice.
Do I Look Beautiful In My Dress. Phillipa Paterson. 140 x 120 cm.
The work in this show has a richness and depth of feeling that can only come with maturity; with years spent exploring. Their paintings buzz and hum with energy and ideas. Many have an edgy quality to them, where you can feel the artists pushing and taking risks. It’s tangible, exciting and thrilling!
Grey Form by Jane Grinling, 84 x 60 cm. Acrylic on canvas.
For these artists, now is their time. Having raised families and pursued careers, they have reached a point in their lives where such responsibilities have lessened, providing more time and physical space to immerse themselves in their artistic practice. These artists are proof that the later years can be the most productive. It urges all of us to follow their example and to keep pursuing our passions with a belief that there is always more to explore and the best is yet to come!
Come Play with Me by Juliet Robertson. 102 x 127cm Oil on canvas
PRIME Opens on Saturday 16th September 10am – 4 pm, when you can come and meet the artists and join us for a drink and delicious cake. Your invitation is attached to this newsletter as a download.
Yellow Blanket. Jacky Bellamy
