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.

Untitled is very pleased to present a six session study of the portrait with Brian Booth Craig! This comes as an amazing and unexpected extension to the figurative sculpture program at the studio. Brian is one of the world's preeminent contemporary sculptors and a remarkable teacher so this will be an invaluable opportunity to understand his approach to the head and portrait.
The workshop will take place over 6 evenings, Monday Wednesday and Friday of the last week of Jan and the first week of Feb. This will provide 18 hours with Brian and the model, we'll be working in ceramic clay at 3/4 scale.
There are very few places still available so I advise booking ASAP
The Fee for this workshop is R 6 500
