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.

“Loved the whole experience.  It is a real treat of a day out.  The food is superb, so like a special meal at a bistro on top of the art & craft experience...and everyone so friendly.”

– Linda
