Annual Award for Outstanding Art Students at Huntington School, York

Painting Bursary

Art students from Huntington School in York can apply each year for an opportunity to be awarded the Stuttle Painting Bursary.

The bursary is awarded to a selection of students each year for outstanding Art works and Final Year Assessments.

The Stuttle Painting Bursary was set up in 2002 following the death of Caroline Stuttle in Bundaberg, Australia.

Caroline had a great love for art and was a talented student at Huntington School. Her father, professional artist Alan Stuttle and brother Richard Stuttle decided to set up the Stuttle Painting Bursary in her name. The aim is to give talented Art Students an opportunity to travel and paint somewhere of their choosing, taking their first steps into a career in the arts.

The bursary is open to all final year Art Students from Huntington School, York. who can apply directly though the art department.

A first award of £200 goes to the student who has shown a substantial body of refined work highlighting their skill and talent as an artist. 3 runner up awards of £100 are also awarded for outstanding work.

“If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.” Michelangelo

Alan Stuttle

After three years at the Stoke on Trent College of Art, he was accepted by the Royal College of Art London. Following a series of solo exhibitions Alan retired from teaching at the age of 29 to devote more time to painting as a Professional Artist.

In 1972 he moved to York opening the Alan Stuttle Gallery in Micklegate, he used the gallery as a base for travelling around the country painting new subjects and expanding his portfolio. In 1988 Alan opened another gallery in Scarborough giving access to the east coast. After painting in the historic city of York the fresh sea air brought new vibrancy to his art.

The 90’s offered new challenges in Europe, USA & Canada, this increased his portfolio significantly, most certainly the energy of Italy brought more excitement and colour to his work.

“I have always been inspired by the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales and would like now to go back to painting landscapes. I have put paint on paper or canvas pretty much everyday of my life but there are still many views waiting to be painted.” Alan Stuttle
