A New Drop-In Day?

Yes you heard that right!

The DropIn days have been getting pretty busy so in response to overwhelming demand, we have decided to increase the number of Drop-In days each month.

This year, the new Drop-In day will be an extra Tuesday and/or Wednesday each month tutored by Val.  The extra dates for 2018 are as follows: 

  • Wed 9th May 2018
  • Wed 30th May
  • Tues 12th June
  • Wed 4th July
  • Tues 24th July
  • Wed 15th August
  • Wed 12th September
  • Wed 26th September
  • Wed 17th October
  • Wed 14th November
  • Tues 27th November
  • Wed 5th December
  • Wed 19th December

From 2019 the additional day will be fixed so that The Old School Studio will offer a Drop-In and Paint session every-

Wednesday (tutored by Val),
Thursday (tutored by Lesley), and
Friday (tutored by Val).

Current regulars at the Drop-In sessions will already be aware that the daily fee is increasing from £13.00 per day to £15.00 on the 15th March 2018.  The fee hasn’t changed in the last 2 years and this new increase will be held for the next 3 years. This means that attendees will still get excellent value for money including:

  • Access to excellent Art Equipment and Facilities,
  • A place to work alongside others with similar creative interests
  • Access to the Studio’s Art Library
  • A professional Art Tutor on call all day
  • Trade discounts on Art Supplies (regular attendees only)
  • Discounts on Framing costs (regular attendees only)
  • An opportunity to Exhibit and Sell annually (regular attendees only)
  • Free Parking, and finally
  • Unlimited Tea, Coffee & Biscuits

In addition Drop-in students will also get the opportunity this summer to visit Rayners Farm in Whittlesford for sketching days.  The farm boasts a large garden and pond, plus ancient barns, so this will provide wonderful en plein air sketching and painting opportunities!

Finally, don’t forget the Drop-In students Annual Exhibition. This year it’s scheduled for the weekend of the 1st & 2nd December, just in time for Christmas.

So why not Drop-In and Paint?
