The increasing need of safety awareness for young travellers led to the creation of the Gap Safety course.

It’s mostly common sense, but in the last 2 years, it has been invaluable to previous students who ran into trouble.

Richard Stuttle - ArtistRichard Stuttle (Founder and director)

British painter Richard Stuttle isolates the intense, fleeting beauty of extreme sports in superbly crisp, spectacular and often-vertiginous oil compositions. Stuttle alternates between nearly photographic hyperrealism and a vividly lit and stylized aesthetic evocative of Expressionist woodblock prints. When meticulously detailed, his paintings pay tribute to the perfected physical and mental conditioning of contemporary athletes in a manner similar to classical Greek sculpture. In the comparatively more dramatic urban scenes, the silhouetted sportsmen become mysterious creatures more akin to superheroes.
