Alice Mumford

“The school of painting is an oasis; a place to share ideas, enthusiasm and adventures into painting. Teaching has helped me to translate my thoughts and reflections about art into practical courses. In doing this I have learnt so much and shared in that adventure. It’s an opportunity to pass on the wonderful sense of being part of a bigger ‘family’ of painters.”

“Alice’s paintings are characterised by lively and immediate surfaces. Vibrant colour is balanced and composition considered, but not forced. Strong abstract qualities within the negative space suggest intrigue. Soft edges shimmer, yet the object remains defined

and tactile. The works have a dreamlike, almost ghostly quality to them as they evoke a connection with memories and past lives. The feeling of a moment interrupted.”
Richard Selby, Director, The Redfern Gallery

What our students say

What a fantastic session – one I would definitely like to try again. Thank you Alice Mumford, Jo and Treve for a very inspired session!

Gwynne Penny

Alice is an inspirational teacher. She gave us solid practical advice, and a good demonstration. She was encouraging and although my painting must have been the worst she did not make me feel despondent – quite the opposite! I like the smallish group and the amazing space to work in.

Sarah Blomfield

This course was wonderful. It was well planned and structured, with a step by step approach, clear progression each day, enabling us all to achieve our very best. Alice is a great teacher, she is positive and finds constructive comments for each individual in the group, all at our different levels, and her enthusiasm and commitment are real motivating forces in the group. She worked as hard was we did, and while that might have felt intense, there were moments of laughter and shared enjoyment of our learning – and I learned so much.

Kim Brown

To have the focus and guidance of a fabulous tutor who is also a lovely painter was great. A privilege to meet Alice Mumford and lovely staff and inspiring environment.

Just to say how much I have enjoyed the Saturday Live sessions.  Each one has led me into new ideas for how to work. They are so worthwhile and greatly appreciated.
