Meet each day at 10.00 am at the Monmouth Coffee Company located at 2 Park St SE1 9AB.
(It is situated right next to the market.)

Day 3
(Sat 31 July) will be based at the art school's studios, where you will be encouraged to synthesise and develop your preparatory studies into a resolved, formalised composition.
You may work on any surface including canvas (please source beforehand).
Each working day will conclude with a plenary session.


Days 1 & 2
