What is the atelier course?
Using the structure of the private ateliers and academies of the 19th century, we aim to give students the technical grounding and understanding to approach any problem with confidence.
Alongside constant life drawing students progress through casts to a live portrait, and then more expansive and substantial poses, with the introduction to paint only once a level of drawings is reached. Each step adding new elements to be incorporated into one's repertoire.
Jack is a traditionally trained artist studying first at the Arts University Bournemouth and then moving to Florence to study under internationally renowned painter and teacher Charles H Cecil, where he ended up teaching at Charles H Cecil Studios, as a visiting tutor before returning back to London in 2017. Since returning Jack has worked as an artist in his studio in London, and has continued teaching as a visiting tutor at Atelier Tremlett in Lewes and returning to Florence to teach at points throughout the year.
