What we're about

This is a meet up for those interested in learning about drawing and painting from life. From his atelier in the beautiful Kasteel Sterckshof, James Jones teaches small groups of up to 5 students using a traditional approach under natural light. Students begin with cast drawing in charcoal using the 'sight-size' method. They can then advance to still life and portrait projects using charcoal, pastel and oil paint. Throughout the courses, students develop their eye to see and understand value, proportion, scale and colour. Courses are given in English and are suitable for all levels, from beginners to the more experienced.

Originally from England, James has spent 5 years training and teaching at a private studio in Florence, Italy. He has now moved to Antwerp to set up a small teaching atelier of his own.

Sessions run Saturdays and Sundays either from 10am - 1pm or 2pm - 5pm. There are also intensive short courses throughout the year, and the option to study both full and part-time during the week. Visit the website or contact James to arrange a tour of the studio and to discuss the various options.
