"Last week’s Floribunda course was all that we hoped it would be.....an uplifting, energising celebration of Spring flowers. As they opened, unfurled relaxed and moved with the changing light and warmth everyone successfully captured the fleeting beauty of the moment.
The ambition for the paintings was to be generous with the materials, inventive and flexible in the way the paintings evolved and particular in order to capture the feeling and qualities of the subject. A fabulous four days. We were all sad when it came to an end.
However, Spring is well and truly here now so all the students can take the experience and paint in their own gardens to continue the joy".
"I will be running two Floribunda courses in 2019. If you would like to come and join me please book here". Emily Ball

A Supportive Space for Practising Artists
We run a range of monthly courses which give support and direction to practicing artists. Jane Nash, who's main Seawhite Studio role, is as a writer for artists, creating text for catalogues and exhibitions, has recently carried out a review of how the students use the studio time and tutors input and it gives such a wonderful sense of what it is like to be part of the creative envrionment of Seawhite Studio. Here is a flavour of the review.
In conversation: seeing the Seawhite Studio through the eyes of its students.
"I’ve become fascinated in the role the studio has played in their development as independent artists. Seawhite studio artists do most of their work elsewhere – at home, in their studios – and then bring their paintings to the studio so that they can further develop ideas, discuss their progress with others and gain new ways of looking at and approaching their paintings.
Many of the artists talked about their changing relationship with the tutors: how they started coming to the studio feeling that they needed to ‘please’ the tutors and tried to paint in a way that they thought the tutors wanted them to. But as they grew in confidence and ability, they learnt to listen to their own voice, still appreciating the perspective that different tutors gave, but acknowledging the importance of following their own judgments.
The Studio boasts a diverse range of tutors and all the artists I have interviewed felt they benefitted hugely from the different painting and teaching styles that each tutors brings. Indeed, one artist said that her choice of paintings to work on at the studio was based on which tutor would be leading the group so that she could get the most out of their individual perspective and input.
All of the conversations that I’ve had with these artists have made me realise that the studio is far more than a provider of art courses. It is a place that supports artists in their individual development, acknowledges their individuality and encourages them to become confident and independent. That is a claim that many art schools would be hard-pressed to make, and further goes to show the exceptional character of the Seawhite Studio".
