Those who know us are aware that we are more than a college running interesting courses…
We have just about survived without redundancies or defaulting on our mortgage. We are ticking along, still under some restrictions, which means we cannot operate at full throttle just yet.
A Donation of any amount (we are a self-supporting charity) will help us to get back on our feet and continue our vocation of lifelong learning in a special setting.

ROBERT DUTTON EXHIBITON
Running now until the end of 2021
“I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember and it is within landscape I feel most inspired. Within, as a description of process is important as I’m connected and engaged with landscape physically, through painting practice, personally and passionately. The majesty of landscape cannot be felt, seen, painted or drawnwith strength and presence without being there. These experiences influence the grander studio pieces giving them all, without doubt, greater depth.” R.D.
