Welcome to the Autumn Term from Principal Isabel H Langtry

Welcome to the Autumn Term from Principal Isabel H Langtry

In addition to all the regular classes and events, The Autumn Guide 2015 is packed full of new classes with opportunities for everyone.


They include ‘Painting and Music’, a whole new way of exploring how sound and image can complement each other. 'Comic Book Workshop’ for adults follows on from the very successful children’s Comic Book Workshop we launched last term and James Bullimore is running ‘Drawing and Printmaking for older children on Saturday afternoon. 'Drawing into Illustration’ on Thursday evening offers the skills required in developing your own illustrative style while ‘Drawing is Wonderful’ on Sunday morning and afternoon looks at the many different aspects of drawing processes and techniques.


I am delighted that Anthony Engi Meacock, part of the collective, Assemble, and nominated for this year’s Turner Prize, will be giving an illustrated talk at our art school, and that Alan Gouk has agreed to lead another workshop - the last one was fantastic. 


Paul Caro will be giving two illustrated talks on ‘Colour Art and the Brain' and ‘What is Art?


Michael Harding, who had to postpone last term, will be demonstrating the making of Oil Paints, while Desmond Healy puts the paints through their paces.


Estelle Lovatt will be talking about the work of sculptor Barbara Hepworth, in conjunction with the Tate Britain Exhibition. 


'The Model using the Palette Knife with Oils' – the ultimate tool for expressive figure paintings, will be a workshop with David Porteous-Butler


The October Day Trip Out, is to The Sculpture Park in Farnham, Surrey which showcases one of the world’s most extensive collections of modern and contemporary sculpture.


We are also offering workshops including Calligraphy and Making Silver Clay during our half term.


The HSoA Gallery has an inspiring series of exhibitions again this Autumn Term, as does the Splash Cafe Gallery.


Join us, it’s great at HSoA
