Fine art classes
Our popular adult education programme is led by practising artist Idun Eustace who has great experience delivering fine art classes. Her unique, open style of teaching has consistently inspired confidence in our students. For more information please contact Ealing Adult Learning on (020) 8825 5577 or visit the adult learning pages
During the summer term, students created original artworks inspired by Walpole Park, led by Idun. The starting point was a tour of the house and park exploring the friendship between Sir John Soane and painter JMW Turner, trends in Regency landscape design and, of course, the painting of Turner himself. The stunning results can be viewed on the hoardings around Wapole Park.
