New English Education Programme

Staffed entirely by members of the New English Art Club, many of whom have a wealth of teaching experience, we offer a thorough and sound approach to drawing in its many forms, with small classes to ensure a personal and individual tutor/student relationship. Classes and workshops are at the heart of what the New English represent. We run courses at various venues, mainly in London, on drawing, sketching en plein air, and working from drawing to painting. View our current workshops and classes.

We also award two scholarships each year to emerging artists with the most promising portfolios. Find out more.
