At the request of our tutor Alice White:

Due to overwhelming demand and safety concerns with regards to working with Oil paints and solvents, we might need to turn away some students on the day. This week's class will be at first-come-first serve basis (limited at 12 students) with priority given to paid Art Society Members and Eventbrite ticket holders. Apologies in advance and thank you for your support.

Feel free to book Oil Painting classes on the 8th and 15th of February which can accommodate more students or our Life Drawing Sessions with the wonderful Lily Holder held every Thursday at 6pm-8pm

The excellent tutor and artist Alice White is teaching Painting in a series of modular sessions from January to March.


Classes are held Wednesdays 2.30-5.30pm at Lewis 206, all skill levels welcome, all materials provided. 


In this first session, 

  • Learn how to use low-odour turpentine with oil paint
  • Learn to create and control layers and tones
  • Try basic textures and colour mixing
  • Solve basic painting problems (unwanted drips, smudging, etc)
  • Learn basic human proportion with the brush
  • Learn basics of light and shadow on the figure


We will have a nude life model for this session


These classes are modular, designed to fit around your schedule. Join one, many, or all our sessions to get some great practical advice from a contemporary artist. Learn the use of both Oil and Acrylic paints!

PAINTING SESSIONS ARE OPEN TO ALL UCL STUDENTS and are of particular interest to students of Life Drawing, Oil Painting, and wider art subjects.

We have a LIFE MODEL for January and March classes, so sign up if you’d like to give figure painting a try!
