About Untitled

Untitled grew out of Julia Teale's remarkable Spencer Street Studio, the longstanding Cape Town institution, expanding to include sculpture in 2018, and finally condensing into the art space that it now is: a studio with a focus on contemporary figurative & representational art in the disciplines of painting, drawing and sculpture.

The school has a firm foundation in the technical and observational, and aims at skills transfer and the production of works that are rigorous in form and thought without being limited by the academic tradition.


Untitled is a modest institution that aims not to overshadow the work of those involved, and to do everything possible to nurture each individual's art within the context of a dynamic group environment, regardless of the level at which they start. The school draws on many years of experience and the special expertise of a growing group of professionals and teachers.

In addition to the workshops and weekly classes, Untitled also provides a consultation service. This is aimed at practicing artists needing to overcome deadlocks in the work, or for those wanting a critical and well-informed eye in anticipation of a show.

Part of the ideology of Untitled is to bring art making and art appreciation closer to life, and to make it a greater part of the lives of many. The studio, InSitu, is home to a number of practicing artists, always open for a visit, and a space for art events and exhibitions. Please don't hesitate to get in touch.

[Open Studio Practise]


Untitled is very pleased to announce a new Open Studio policy, whereby artists without studios can make use of the InSitu teaching studio and infrastructure outside of formal workshop time. This is a perfect feature for people in need of space to create but without the expensive commitment of a private studio. It comes with the benefit of working in a community of practicing artists for those who are not in need of any formal tuition per se.


This grants people full access four days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday).

R 800 p/m

InSitu, 4th floor 199-203 Albert Rd. Woodstock.
