Turps Painters showcases the work of painters who have undertaken the Studio Programme at the Turps Art School in London.  

Turps Magazine editors had long held the view that an artist led painting programme, within a supported studio,  could flourish in a climate where there is growing disquiet about the quality of painting tuition, inadequate tutorial input and isolation in traditional studio set ups.

In 2012 it was time to respond to this in much the same way that a painting magazine run by practicing painters has fulfilled a need for many painters with a desire for intellectual stimulus and focus in this area.
