Our trainers are established, professional actors. All are very experienced in running acting courses and business training.

Our Philosophy:

Our main philosophy with all our training is to show every participant a good time. You should always enjoy what you're doing if you really want to learn something new and develop yourself.  Each time we run a course, it is always very different as the core of the work is created around the participants, so no one course is ever the same. The actors and act up do however have a structured outline for each course;  the environment is designed and then it's up to the participants to be brave and throw themselves in. No one has ever regretted the decision.

As we offer a variety of different courses, it is important for you, and us, that you enrol on the course that is best suited to your requirements.

London Atelier of Representational Art
Courses / Programs
Located in Vauxhall, London, the London Atelier of Representational Art was established in response to the rarity of rigorous representational art education and is unique in the UK with its approach to teaching the most fundamentally important aspects of drawing, painting and sculpture from life. We offer fulltime and parttime drawing, painting such as bargue drawing, cast drawing and painting, portrait drawing and painting; Sculpture including intensive figure sculpture. We also offer inspirational classes to learn about the techniques of distinctive art personalities.

Inspired by the atelier method of instruction, the unique emphasis of the course is given to working directly from the life model in a continuous pose of no less than a week and up to a month under unvarying (natural) north light conditions, giving optimum time to observe the figure and understand how to see. Working with tutors 6 hours a day and using the “sight- size” technique we aim to teach essential concepts of proportion, line, gesture, form and light to best master expression of the human form.
We offer fulltime and parttime drawing, painting such as bargue drawing, cast drawing and painting, portrait drawing and painting; Sculpture including intensive figure sculpture. We also offer inspirational classes to learn about the techniques of distinctive art personalities.

Hereford College of Arts
Courses / Programs
Hereford College of Arts is a specialist college offering a range of courses in art, design and the performing arts - from entry level through to Foundation and Honours degrees. We are located in Hereford in Herefordshire in the West Midlands region of England, approximately 16 miles (26 km) east of the border with Wales, 24 miles (39 km) south-west of Worcester, and 23 miles (37 km) north-west of Gloucester. Our specialism gives a unique focus and quality to the life of the college – informal, fun, creative and unpredictable. “It’s not like university – it’s a real art college."

As a smaller college we can offer individual, personal attention to each student – unlike most of the larger colleges and universities. Tutors are available for a chat any time, any day of the week. Each student has their own individual workspace (for studio based courses), and all course sizes are kept small, so you will quickly get to know everyone on your course and probably most other courses, as well as staff throughout the college.
