LARA offers a full-time and part-time three term Foundation, and a full-time and part-time nine term Diploma, alongside Easter and Summer Schools and an exciting programme of short courses throughout the year.

LARA was established in 2008 in response to the rarity of rigorous representational art training in the UK. We are delighted that our alumni now work in fields as diverse as portraiture, digital concept art for video games, scenic art for theatre and contemporary fine art. Many of our alumni have won prestigious awards such as the Columbia Threadneedle Prize.

On the Foundation and Diploma courses, our tutors, all atelier-trained, use the 'sight size' method and our carefully designed curriculum to teach our students the fundamental concepts of proportion, line, gesture, form and light. Once drawing is mastered the student is introduced to colour theory and moves into working in oils. Throughout the course the teaching day is split between drawing or painting from the nude model (on sustained poses of no less than thirty hours) and working on cast drawing or painting projects, still-lives and portraits. Students receive at least two one-to-one critiques each day from the tutor and their progress through the curriculum and development is well recorded. 

With such tailored teaching we are able to cater to all levels of training and experience on our Foundation and Diploma. Similarly, unless stated, our short courses are open to students at any point of their art education. In general the maximum number of students on a short course will only be eight or ten so the tutor has the resources to help you according to your individual requirements.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our studios.
