The Realist Academy Walton Hall was established due to a demand for a traditional academic approach too drawing and painting in the North West.
At present the school will be teaching the fundamentals of Portrait Drawing and Painting. The Academy offers a number of different approaches both traditional and modern. We aim to create a balanced technique of careful time-tested methods from both the traditional and Illustration schools. RAWH provides amateur and professional artists with an opportunity to perfect their skills. Through a practical understanding of the materials and methods taught, students will cultivate the means to describe reality with an articulate visual language.
Louis Smith is the principle teacher he a classically trained portrait painter, studying in Florence for three years. He has been shortlisted for a number of art prizes such as the BP Portrait Award and Threadneedle Prize,
