Ron Bowen currently lives in Paris and is Reader Emeritus at the Slade School of Fine Art. He leads workshops and seminars in France and England around the subjects of painting and drawing.
A teaching career of more than 40 years includes leading art schools in New York, at the Parsons School and Pratt Institute, and in London. Here he taught at the Chelsea College of Art, Goldsmiths College and, for many years, the Slade School of Fine Art, where he was head of Undergraduate Painting. On leaving the Slade he took the position of Head of Studios at Studio Art Centers International, in Florence, Italy.
Ron Bowen’s wide ranging career includes exhibitions of paintings, drawings, photographic and mixed media works, publishing projects, and work with dance and theatre companies. Recent projects include a text and accompanying set of interactive ‘visual games’ for ‘Investigating Drawing/ the Self Portrait’ published online by the National Portrait Gallery, London, and projections to accompany Bach’s ‘Passion According to St John’ for the Trinité Chorus and Orchestra, first performed April 2009. The subject of the body is central to his work, and he has investigated it in a scientific as well as expressive context, having worked with the Palaeontologist Richard Leakey in the reconstruction of early Hominids in East Africa. He strongly believes that the methods of enquiry of the arts and the sciences have much to learn from each other and that drawing, particularly, is the area of investigation in which they meet. He has elaborated on this empirical approach to drawing in the book Drawing Masterclass (Random House).

A large part of Clare’s work involves the manipulation and cutting of paper. Making scalpel drawings in what appear, on the surface, to be blank book structures in which the turn of a page starts to reveal a narrative or image. The processes involved, choice of materials, binding structure, cutting away and the spaces left behind are integral to the work as a whole. Recurring themes of place, scale and surface, and natural forms are the origins of the work.

Laura Emsley is a London based artist who was born in South Africa and trained for her BA Fine Arts at UNISA (University of South Africa) and MA Fine Arts at the Slade School of Fine Art.
In her work, the role of traveller, explorer and artist are combined. They are re-examined and reinvented. A framing reference for her practice is the painting by Paul Gauguin entitled “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?” She seeks to link the big questions to specific contemporary events and locations. For instance, the 2010 Football World Cup held in South Africa, becomes a template on which to map out a series of connections linking the evolution of the human foot to historical and contemporary diasporas. The attempt is to synthesize fragmented experience and multiple forms of knowledge in order to discover a sense of orientation and create journeys. Material is drawn from many different sources such as philosophy, science, cosmology, archeology, art history and autobiography. Fact and fiction are fluid allowing for the creation of an imaginative cartography.
Laura Emsley has taught as a part-time and visiting lecturer at various institutes since 2008 including the Slade School of Fine Arts, The University of Westminster, UCA and UWE.

Jim Hobbs (b. 1975, Ohio, USA) works across a wide variety of media including 16mm film, video, installation, site-specific work, drawing, sculpture, print, sound and photography. At the core of his work is an interest in the functions of materialty and time, and the multiple/potential configurations of both. His work constantly questions the personal and social implications of loss, oblivion, history and memory and the subsequent acts of remembrance and memorialization.

Max Holdaway is a sculptor who works with a diverse range of materials and methods of production that has included photography and performance using materials to challenge his physicality and transform his appearance.
Recently he has made large and small–scale sculptural installations building strange architectural environments and approximations of natural forms.
He is interested in process and the physical limitations of the work, its boundaries and questions of permanence. To this end he also makes series of drawings, collages and paintings as a pivotal part of his practise reinventing and extending the life of the sculptures that no longer exist.

Kate Lepper currently divides her time between London, UK and Wellington NZ. Kate graduated with a MFA (Distinction) from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2011. With a particular tactile sensibility and predilection for ready-made colour, Kate's practice includes, sculpture, installation, performance and painting. Her work often deals with the problematic nature/culture academic paradigm, and is always focused on propagating public well-being and wresting the experience of joy from the role of consumer, via what she terms as 'Visual Nutrition'.
Kate has exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand including an installation project at the Govett Brewster Art Gallery in 2008. Since moving to Europe in 2009, Kate has taken part in shows in Finland, Turkey and the UK. Her recent projects include a performance with Nastja Ronkko at Guest Projects, London. This summer Kate will be Artist in Residence at Site2012 Festival in Stroud and at Meantime Project-Space, Cheltenham. Other upcoming projects this autumn include a two-month residency in Quebec, Canada and a collaborative performance at the Finnish National Art Gallery. Kate's practice will feature in an upcoming issue of the Australian National University's 'Humanities Journal' on 'The World and World-making in Art' in 2013.
With a background in constructing remedial resources, gallery education and exhibition technical assistance, Kate brings to her teaching a broad contemporary art awareness, augmented by a hands-on, open and playful attitude to material. In 2010 Kate was a visiting lecturer in Painting and Art Theory at The Quay School of the Arts, Whanganui, New Zealand and in the Sculpture department at the University for the Creative Arts, Surrey, UK. For the past two years Kate has had an ongoing presence at the Slade Summer School, aking part in the evening Artist Lecture Series and in 2011 as a visiting artist to 'The Expanded Field of Drawing'.

Laura Medler is an artist working with photography who graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2000. Her practice combines an experimental approach to analogue photography along with current digital processes. Using a photographic technique developed over the last decade, time and motion are captured in an elongated suspended still image. All the works are carefully choreographed sequences of movement performed usually by a lone subject and recorded by modified medium format equipment, establishing a performative relationship between subject and camera. Her work sees an ongoing investigation into the potential for changes in state and transformation of the human body during times of transition. Rites of passage such as birth, puberty, first love and death are explored alongside the more mundane rituals of life.
She has combined her practice with teaching positions at the Slade - Teaching Fellow (2008), Summer School Tutor - and the University of the Arts, London (Associate Lecturer), whilst also gaining extensive experience devising projects and delivering visual arts workshops in a freelance capacity within educational, gallery and community settings, across a broad age range from early learning to post-graduate level.
She has exhibited her work in solo and group shows internationally, including the LIsson Gallery, London, Outline Gallery, Amsterdam and most recently, Galerie Raum mit Licht in Vienna. Her work has been featured in publications such as Next Level and Camera Austria and is held in both public and private collections.
Donal Moloney was born in Cork, Ireland in 1984. He studied his BA at the Crawford College of Art and Design from 2003-2007. He did an M.F.A. at the Slade School of Fine Art from 2008-2010 and a PGCHE at University of the Arts London, 2010-2011. He is an associate lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts and currently lives and works in London.
His practice currently involves investigating how the formal structures of paintings influences their function as receptacles of time and labour as well as their relationship to authorial agency.
He is concerned with how meaning and illusion are communicated through paint and how
paintings can simultaneously affirm and negate their own materiality. Contradictions are important in my work; how
the sign in painting is something that requires interpretation but to which no
single interpretation is adequate.
Questions central to my practice are thus:
• What conditions motivate artist’s laborious painting processes?
• How do laborious paintings alter individual and collective perspectives on time?

Daniel Preece’s work has mainly been about the urban landscape using the city as a starting point to explore formal issues of geometry and colour that hover between abstraction and figuration. The paintings have evolved from a pictorial landscape tradition, working directly from observation to create a sense of place and space using a strong personal colour palette.
Studied at Chelsea School of Art 1988–89, the Slade School
of Fine Art 1989-93 and the Princes Drawing School 2006-07.

Hephzibah Rendle-Short was born in Brisbane Australia. She graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art with both BA and MA. In 2012 she completed a practice-led PhD at the Royal College of Art.
Hephzibah Rendle-Short has had a longstanding involvement with painting from observation, which became the impulse for her practice-led PhD completed March 2012. In this work she considered the relationship between objectivity, or empirical evidence on one hand and fiction, pointing to subjectivity on the other. She deploys ‘the diagram/me’ to throw light on this dialectical relationship that continues to fascinate her. Psychoanalysis, contemporary art practice and forms of writing – fictional, philosophical, performative – are essential co-ordinates for her as she labours in the studio with paint, words and other materials towards exhibiting and performing in the outside world.

Ian Rowlands studied at Norwich School of Art (1980-83) and at the RA Schools (1984-87). He is a figurative painter with interest in the human head and more recently, the remembered landscape.
Sandra Smith studied painting at Wimbledon School of
Art (1980-83) the Royal College of Art Painting School (1986-88) and a PGCE at
Avery College (1990). She makes paintings of mundane domestic and urban places
alongside sites and monuments of pilgrimage, creating relationships between
these using geometrical underpinning to link the imagery. She has been
coordinator of the Slade Summer School and Short courses since 2005.
Adele Wagstaff studied painting at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (1989-93) and the Slade School of Fine Art (1994-96). She gained a PGCE from University of Greenwich in 2003. She has exhibited widely throughout the UK and also teaches on a number of courses in London and the south east including Putney School of Art and at West Dean College. Recent exhibitions include ‘The Geometry of Painting’ at Medici Gallery and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and her work has been included in exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery, Jerwood Space, Royal West of England Academy and Aberdeen Art Gallery.
