Hello and a warm welcome to The Edinburgh Drawing School website.
We are dedicated to providing inspiring and professional, boutique-style drawing and painting classes for all ages and abilities (maximum 7-8 people per class), taught by respected, practising artists, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Drawing is a fantastic skill, and a good life-drawing class is completely absorbing. Even professional artists challenge themselves afresh each time they start a new figurative drawing; with E.D.S the 'learning' never stops...
"It's all about stimulating the ol' grey matter in new ways...life drawing is better for your brain than Sudoku - each picture is a fresh challenge, working different parts of your brain. Every time you have a blank page you have to solve the problem that is set by the model..." from the programme 'How to Stay Young' , Episode 2, BBC 1
