Renaissance Atelier

Victoria King established The Renaissance Atelier at the Chocolate Factory in 2014 to offer tuition in the traditional oil painting and drawing techniques as used by Renaissance artists. As a highly experienced tutor with 17 years university teaching experience together with junior/vocational teaching, her teaching ethos is sensitive to the learning needs of individual students from a variety of cultural backgrounds.

"A thorough, exacting and very enjoyable Renaissance painting course which examines the processes and procedures in painting at a fascinating period of time.  Victoria is a knowledgeable and patient guide in these methods and also provides an understanding and good sense of the artists of the Renaissance".  Ann Green BA
