studio workshop

Our visual Arts programme includes a wide range of Fine Art classes tailored to different approaches to making work. The Blyth Art Workshops invite visiting artists to teach a one off session for up to 10 people. The Open Studio Afternoons provide individual creative support and bespoke tuition from our permanent artist in residence Mindy Lee.

To find out about up and coming art classes please see What's on.

Open Studio Afternoons in Blyth Art Studio



Wednesday afternoons give everyone studying and working at Imperial College the chance to step away from work and do something creative, with guidance and support from a professional artist. Artist in residence Mindy Lee will be drawing and painting in the studio from 13.30-15.00 and will be on hand to help you with your creative ventures. All support is tailored to individual or group needs and can include any/all of the following: 



Practical issues (such as stretching canvas /paper, to what art materials and tools will best suit your practice) 

Creative thoughts (such as how to develop an initial idea into a finished piece of art)

Contextual context (suggesting other artists or source material which might inspire you)

Creative Company (providing a friendly and stimulating working environment in which to make art.)
