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 offers a flexible opportunity for drawing and painting from the model on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays during term time.
We welcome both the beginner and more established artists. You can join at any time of the year and choose your own pattern of attendance through our online booking system. Academic Year 2019-20 tickets are no longer valid. Please contact the office for a refund.
In order to gain access into the Open Studio please book online before attending. We are unable to offer a drop-in ticket system due to social distancing.
