ART SCHOOL

Turps Editors had long held the view that an artist-led painting programme within a supported studio could flourish in a climate where there is growing disquiet about the quality of painting tuition, inadequate tutorial input and isolation in traditional studio set ups.

In 2012 it was time to respond to this in much the same way that a painting magazine run by practising painters has fulfilled a need for many painters with a desire for intellectual stimulus and focus in this area.

If you need help writing a statement in support of an application to further education or a funding application we can pair you with one of our mentors who assist you by checking  your first attempt statement against the criteria, offer suggestions to improve your statement, and then review and comment on your rewrite. (The mentor will be able to comment on up to two rewrites. The mentor will not be writing your statement but advising you on how to improve your own writing).
