Summer School 2017
This year's Summer School is set in the dramatic coastal environment of Cuckmere Haven Valley, providing a landscape of cliffs, sea and rolling hills to inspire,
"where you will have space for experimentation, risk taking and development of work that goes beyond trying to copy what you see and instead becomes a much more expressive and personal response".
The course is based at the Coastguards' Cottage, followed by focused time back in the Seawhite Studio. The first two weeks are already full up and the additional course, which has already been booking up quickly, takes place from the 24th - 28th July (Monday - Friday).
Book your place now and join us for this wonderful course,while there are still places left, just follow this link: Summer School Week 3

PRICING OF CONTEMPORARY ART:
There is unlikely to be a person alive who has had a dalliance with the contemporary art market who hasn't wondered how it works. Who sets the prices? What are the factors involved in this process? Are there key indicators during an artists' career that affect this? It is indeed intriguing, but it's not as confusing as you might think. As part of a series of lectures I am due to give in the coming months at various Art Schools and Universities on "The Commercial Reality, making headway in the art market", I have developed an algorithm which looks at the basic principles of this. It takes a little bit of explaining, but is not complicated. This will be part of what I deliver in the gallery lecture next week, Wednesday 3rd May. Other topics covered are Awards, based on research carried out with artists, which ones, why etc. And finally Gallery Representation will be briefly mentioned, again the what's and why's.
Open to all, not just artists. Limited to 30 places.
