The Atelier 88 ethos
We provide art courses that cater for all abilities from absolute beginners to BA and MA level teaching, we especially encourage those who have yet to find their creative spirit. Our ethos is to inspire and further your understanding of visual understanding. We want to challenge and to enable you to create. Our aim is to foster a visual thinking centred on the premise that art can nurture personal transformation. By seeing the world afresh through encounters with nature, culture, and history, you will find yourself immersed in a visual landscape. On discovering those untapped energies which are within us all, we will awaken our creative spirit. Atelier 88 seeks to promote a better understanding of ourselves through the restorative energies of that creativity. Making art is a meditation on life, on nature and the human presence in nature, ourselves as nature and not separated from it.
