20 high school students from Martin Drexler’s class at The American School in London will be spending the weekend learning portraiture from first principles. They will be with us for 2 six hour days drawing and painting from life. We very much look forward to this experience, reaching another generation of budding representational artists.

Supper in a Pear Tree pops up on the first Thursday of the month in the rustic surroundings of the art school, Lavender Hill Studios in Battersea.
The Evening starts at 7pm with a glass of wine and a drawing session around a nude model run by art teacher and artist Charlotte Partridge. Beginners more than welcome!
And then a three course scrumptious supper will be served and cooked by one of the resident Petersham Nurseries chefs, Annabel Partridge, (yes it has a michelin star!).
The night will cost you £30 and for that we can promise you’ll leave with a masterpiece, a full belly and probably a new friend.
