Victoria King established The Renaissance Atelier at the Chocolate Factory in 2014, offering tuition in the traditional oil painting and drawing techniques used by Renaissance artists. As a highly experienced tutor with 17 years university teaching experience together with junior/vocational teaching, the overall ethos is sensitive to the learning needs of individual students from a variety of different 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 theRenaissance”. Ann Green BA
