The Great Novus Art Challenge

While we are all stuck indoors, what better way to pass the time than release the inner artist in you!

The Challenge

Each week, as long as the current situation goes on, we will be setting a challenge for you to tackle at home. We will give you a fairly general theme, show you some examples from some famous – or not so famous –  artists to give you some ideas, and then it is over to you.

Initially setting the challenge weekly – we will be setting the theme by a Wednesday for you to produce the work by 2pm UK time on the following Saturday – if the demand is there we could do this more frequently.

We then want you to upload the images to either our Facebook or Instagram pages or if you don’t do those simply email the image of your artwork to us. the links are below. We will then choose at 4pm our top three who can suggest a theme for the following week, which we will put out for a vote.

You can use any medium you want pencils, paints, collage etc – you choose. The important thing is to enjoy yourself and express yourself – REMEMBER – there is no right or wrong way only different ways of doing!

Announcement regarding Coronavirus outbreak

Updated Sunday 22nd March 2020

It is with sadness and regret that with the latest developments with this virus and the measures imposed to combat it, we have been left with no other option than to close the studio for all our art classes with immediate effect.

We can still be contacted with any queries that you may have regarding future classes or commissions for paintings, portraits and military illustrations.

We are looking into ways of continuing some sort of instruction online and will keep this page updated with developments. In the meantime thank you all for your support in these troubled times.

THE STUDIO

Novus Studio has been established for 25 years, and for the last 20 years we have been lucky to be able to have our studio in the pleasant rural surroundings of  Wateringbury.

We have always combined our classes with our own work and students can benefit from working in a true studio environment.

In February 2020 we re-located to new studio premises at Redhill Farm Estates, Red Hill, Wateringbury, and we are feeling very lucky to have found them. 

At the top of the hill on Red Hill we have a fabulous view over the valley, windows which we did not have in our previous studio, and for those cold days a log burner!
