Pupils are taught how to produce successful and interesting art, using a variety of materials, processes and techniques through a series of structured and guided practical workshops. Pupils work week by week, slowly building towards a finished piece of work. We also work regularly in sketchbooks. Previous topics include Modigliani inspired self portraits in acrylic, Patrick Caulfield style interiors and Surrealist Photomontage.

Courses run for half an academic term. (or slightly shorter)

Our CURRENT course began on Tuesday 4th January and will run for 6 weeks (5 for Monday classes, due to the 3rd being a bank holiday) until Friday 11th February. The cost is £75 or £135 for siblings.

The course is based on the work of the Spanish Surrealist Joan Miró, whose distinctive work was frequently created using a process known as “automatic drawing”. Throughout the term we will be referencing the book, Miró’s Magical Animals, which was written by friend of Artroom, Antony Penrose and illustrated by previous Artroom pupils, recounting his childhood memories of meeting Miró.
