Turps Art School has re-opened submissions and extended the deadline on the following programme:

Painters Studio Programme, London
Call for applications; extended deadline: 17th June 2013

An intensive twelve-month studio based programme of mentoring, dynamic group seminars, talks and lectures for emerging and mid career painters. Based along side a new studio and gallery complex run by ASC in South East London, SE17, participants work in a large open plan studio, each receiving one on one tutorials from a dedicated team of mentors, all of whom are practicing painters, and participate in larger group seminars with the other programme members and the staff team. The programme includes interim and end of programme exhibitions, and provides many opportunities to create ongoing connections, critique and discourse with the wider painting community.

Uniquely, participants will be actively encouraged to request a number of visits from an extensive group of high profile international painters associated with Turps Magazine and a wider UK painting community.

For further information please contact [email protected]

Painters on this years programme are currently showing work until 12th May at The Mayors Parlour, First Floor, Bow House 153-159 Bow Road, London, E3 2SE

In addition, an ongoing call for applications on the following programme:
Online Correspondence Course for Painters

Deadline: 30 August 2013

The online correspondence course is an innovative new project giving painters access to critical perspectives and challenging insights into their own practice, wherever they are, over a twelve-month period.

Participants will engage in a two way process, during which time they will present works via an online folder (www.privateviews.com) and in turn receive feedback at regular intervals from a dedicated mentor and the wider tutorial team at Turps Art School.

For further information about either of the courses please email us at [email protected]

Turps Banana Magazine was first produced in 2005, by Marcus Harvey and Peter Ashton Jones. Turps focuses on new writing about painting, written by painters. Published twice a year with full colour reproductions and, significantly, NO advertising to distract from the ranging debate. Turps Art School was founded in 2012 to allow emerging and mid career painters to spend an intensive year to reinvigorate their practice by working alongside and talking to other painters.
