Update: 12:30pm 21 April 2020

Dear All,

I hope you are keeping well and safe in these unprecedented and uncertain times.

Following the government guidelines, regretfully the school closed from 5pm Thursday 19 March 2020 until further notice.

As mentioned in previous updates, for continuity and motivation for staff and students as well as to support the sustainability of the school, we have developed a completely new curriculum for the summer term, starting with ‘taster’ sessions for our online courses from w/c 4 May 2020.

You will be able to enrol via the link below:

The online courses are taught by known PSAD freelance tutors who are specialists in a range of disciplines. The courses are designed to give students remote access to demonstrations, individual and group feedback through set projects or tasks. You will be able to discuss your work with advice from the tutor on how you can improve and develop your skills.

During the session your tutor will talk to you remotely via Zoom (if you need further assistance with the software, please see the step by step PDF guidance on the enrol tab).

Please note, our courses are only for students 18 years old and above unless specified as a part of our family learning provision, where an adult does need to be present.

As mentioned before, our students and community are at the heart of all that we do, and we will endeavour to do everything we can to continue that crucial role and serve our students.

Your continued support in our wonderful school is hugely appreciated as always.

Please take care to stay safe and best wishes on behalf of the PSAD teams.

Nilar Morgan – Head of Putney School of Art & Design

Our online courses are proving to be very popular, last week we ran taster sessions and then shorter 2 or 3 week courses from this week. See below some of the comments and pictures we have received from students:

‘I really enjoyed what you were doing, Jaco, (Botanical Illustration) and will work on curly leaves from your file. Thank you for the work put in and for the resources provided.’

‘Thank you so much for the course yesterday (Jane’s Comics & Graphic Novels Class). It was fun even though I was terrified. I now have an idea of how I could have told my story and I shall panic less if I have to draw a character in different positions. I’m doing Sophie’s illustration course this afternoon.. looking forward to that.’ ‘Really enjoyed the session yesterday. Has really got me thinking. I was inspired not only by your diary comics, but all the other participants too. Thank you.’

‘Thanks for the lesson Sarah, really enjoyed it.’ (Sarah’s Expressive Drawing) ‘Thanks for the class this morning – I really enjoyed it and found it very useful!’ ‘Thanks so much for today’s class it was wonderful to relax and have fun with mixed medias’. ‘Thank you Sarah for today’s class I really, really enjoyed it….Fabulous class…I will try and book on another.’ ‘Thank you so much, Sarah – I really enjoyed the class. I’m still tinkering with my self-portrait – it’s getting darker (character-wise) by the minute! It’s interesting, too, how well the class worked on Zoom. As you said, it could well be the future for many PSAD students now. All the best’.

‘Thanks so much for today, (Sophie’s Painting & Drawing Online Course) I thoroughly enjoyed it.’ ‘I’m enjoying the course very much and have done some outside the lesson so as to practice more.’ ‘Thanks so much for the lovely class this morning. I really enjoyed it.’

Studios

The school has a superb life drawing studio on the first floor, complete with vast north-facing windows and vaulted wooden ceiling. The school has developed and gradually expanded since 1895, apart from a brief break during the war years. It now has six studios designed specifically for painting, printmaking, drawing, ceramics and more recently, digital design.

With its roots firmly in the local community, excellent transport links have helped us to attract students from all over London and beyond. We receive continued support and encouragement from The Friends of Putney School of Art and Design, an independent, registered charity.
