It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of Brian Starkey, a former art tutor who taught at SCOLA for over 30 years.
Following his death relatives paid tribute to a ‘brilliant potter and artist’ who had displayed a talent for illustration and animation.
Walt Disney himself was said to have tried to tempt him to work for him but a love of teaching saw Brain Starkey turn down the opportunity. He had also trained with Artist Pablo Picasso.
The first floor at our main Sutton Centre houses “The Brian Starkey Gallery” showcasing student work & is dedicated to one of our most popular, talented tutors.
We wish his family, friends and loved ones strength during these difficult times. Brian has inspired many of our staff and students whilst he worked with us at SCOLA and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
We have hundreds of courses at Sutton College.
