I hope you are managing to stay safe and well during this extremely challenging period. On March 21st, following Government advice, we temporarily closed our studios due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and moved to supporting our students and artists online. We have been emailing weekly Mystery Challenge lessons to students and receiving artwork back for critique.
At the very least, we will continue to send Mystery Challenges and critique work next term, until we are advised that it is safe to return to running classes again in the studios. I expect we will offer a lot more too. We are working on it.
We encourage you to support us if you can by booking a place for next term, no matter what we are able to provide, whether online, in the studio, or a bit of both. Bookings can be made via this website. Please pay the usual price if you can, or use the code: 50percent to contribute half (this discount only applies to 12 week summer term classes). People paying the full price will be offered their choice from seven signed limited edition prints made by our teachers as a thank you.
As a part of the current fundraising, we have also launched an Insight School of Art Patron Scheme. You can read more information about this by clicking here.
Over the past few weeks, people have been absolutely amazing. We have received so many kind messages of support and lots of people have signed up for whatever form of classes we are able to provide next term. This kindness makes us even more determined to survive.
If we get through this, next year Insight will be 20 years old. In recent years over 400 people have attended classes each week. I believe Insight has provided an essential service to creative people in North London, not only educational, but also offering a community for like minded people, supporting their mental health and well being.
Best wishes to you all.
