Ian Scott Massie

← Back to Tutors

Ian Scott Massie’s artistic roots lie in the British Romantic school of the 1930’s and 40’s. He combines the visual style and philosophy of artists such as Paul Nash and John Piper with the palette and painterly freedom of artists such as Turner and Whistler in pursuit of the personality of the landscape. He is an experienced and popular teacher with an extensive knowledge of many painting and drawing media and techniques.

“The steady pace was ideal for a beginner. The techniques learned showed wonderful results from the simplest of ideas. Encouraging comments helped to build confidence. The best thing was seeing a half decent image emerge from my paper! The best things were meeting very interesting people, enjoying delicious food and being taught by such an enthusiastic tutor. A brilliant day!”
