Contemporary Painting Mentoring

Contemporary Painting Practice

The Contemporary Painting Practice mentoring programme is a new remote learning course. The programme is a melting pot of minds and creative energy, an easily accessible and convenient platform designed to encourage exploration within the field of painting at an affordable rate. The course is friendly and supportive, yet critically intense.

The aim of the programme is to provide an opportunity to further strengthen your specialist painting practice and help you on your way to forming a career practicing as a contemporary painter by working with and responding to emailed guidance. This guidance will be provided by thoughtful professional painters, cultural influencers and experienced academics with years of exhibiting and teaching experience. We aim to guide you through many of the conditions, questions, contexts and techniques appropriate to international painting practice by analysing your practice and offering advice and suggestions designed to open up new pathways for investigation. We specialise in guidance aimed at improving techniques as well as providing contextual and conceptual understanding on the potential role of painting within contemporary art and the wider world. 

The programme will provide you with monthly written emailed feedback correspondence from leading practicing artists, academics and cultural influencers. Our tutors will respond to the uploaded images of your work on our platform and give you a personal response that will focus on improving your work, your knowledge of the field and understanding of professional practice. They may also comment directly on how you might expand your research and offer bespoke technical and conceptual guidance.


*For an additional payment learning can be enhanced by activating a "studio tutorial call-out" at an affordable rate. This option allows you to book a tutor to come and speak with you in your studio for one hour or more and provides face to face contact if required (*at present this is offered to students based in London, Glasgow and Brighton only).

*Skype tutorials are also available under a similar “call-out” scheme.
