    Mission statement

    The Fine Art Collective is passionate about art materials.  We want all artists to have the knowledge to make informed choices about the materials they use.  We want to enable artists to push the boundaries of creativity, safe in the knowledge their artwork will stand the test of time.

          • Global community of artists and technical experts.
          • Expertise on artists’ colors, tools and techniques.
          • Connect artists around the world, through our global brand partners.

    Our activities

    We run technical workshops for art students all over the world, in partnership with universities, colleges and arts organisations.  Delivered by practising artists with a passion for materials, the workshops take an in-depth look at the production of artist colours, the variety of materials available today and techniques for using them.

    Students benefit from hands-on experience with a range of colours and mediums, and can sign up to receive our regular newsletters and gain access to other useful resources.

          • Oil
