TUTORED ART CLASSES
Each week in the studio (Greenwich), there will be a different theme to inspire and guide our tutored classes. We will explore how the masters, and contemporary artists, have used the theme in their art.
With a new perspective in mind, you can either work on the set up prepared for the theme, or work on your own composition (from objects in the studio, or anything else you may want to bring along).
Guidance and feedback is given.
There will be a coffee and tea break which is included. Please bring in your own materials or you can purchase a kit or supplies from us. Studio session painters can have their own storage box to keep their materials in the studio. The fee is £20 for a two hour class.
FIRST CLASS: Please note materials are included for your first class if you don't have any.
Our studio themes coming up this autumn are:
Apples in Still Life: Paul Cezanne
Shadows: Lee Fether
Colour Theory & Colour Mixing: Henri Matisse
Painting on Board: Barbara Hepworth
Potted Plant Potraits: Lucian Freud
Layers of Colour: Edgar Degas
Patterns Galore: Yayoi Kusama
The Studio: Pablo Picasso

Our Fine Arts Lead
Lee began her career as a designer, training at Central School of Art and Design, London.
After having children she went back to college and began studying drawing and painting. She found herself to have an affinity with portraiture, and in the following years began taking commissions and entering competitions. In 2009 her portrait of Gail Porter was selected for the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery's Primary Collection.
It was in 2012 her portrait of Michael Rosen was also selected for the BP Portrait Award and then subsequently acquired for their Primary Collection. The portrait is normally on display there. Her work has also been included in Art UK, the online home of every public art collection in the UK.
In 2018, Lee was selected as a participant for Sky Arts' Portrait Artist of the Year. Lee's sitter, Paralympic gold medalist Kadeena Cox, chose Lee's portrait as her favourite.
In her garden studio Lee has continued to produce drawings and paintings, as well as pastel landscapes of Blackheath and Greenwich. In her more recent series, she has explored abstracted landscapes in oils.
