The Heatherley School of Fine Art Open Studio is based on the traditional French Atelier system. It gives artists open access to a studio in which they are able to work from a model with the assistance of a tutor.
The Open Studio has been part of our provision for artists since we were founded in 1845
The Open Studio ticket offers a flexible opportunity for drawing and painting from the model.
We welcome both the beginner and more established artists. You may join at any time of the year and choose your own pattern of attendance. The purchase of an Open Studio ticket entitles you to 10 half day sessions. Tickets are valid for the current academic year and unused sessions are not transferable to the subsequent academic year, so please plan your time effectively. Academic Year 2018-19 tickets expired on Friday 5 July 2019.
In order to gain access into the Open Studio please ensure you have a valid 2019-2020 ticket (green) with you.
