Summer School at LARA

Added on by Miguel Sopena.

Have spent a very enjoyable two weeks experiencing the incredibly painstaking drawing and painting method taught at the London Atelier of Representational Art (LARA) in Vauxhall, South London. An inspiration for lovers of precision and discipline but likely to drive mad more intuitive souls, I do believe, though, that the LARA method, reincorporated from centuries-old traditional European teaching practices, has something to offer every artist and is definitely a great exercise in concentration and seeing. Luca Indraccolo and his fellow tutors are great teachers, patient, focused, helpful and consistent. If nothing else, remember: Stand well back from your easel (it really works!)
