Founded in 2012, we are a small, privately run art school based in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.  We pride ourselves on our fantastic group of tutors, all practicing artists, who have steadily built the school's reputation as a creative and engaging environment for students of every level.

We run three 10-week terms and a Summer School each year, with a range of courses and workshops for adults including most aspects of both drawing and painting. We also run classes for children aged eight years and above.

Edinburgh Drawing School Term Dates

ADULT COURSES

We run a full range of ten week adult courses in both drawing and painting for all levels - beginners (including the absolutely terrified!) are more than welcome.

TEAMBUILDING EVENTS

You and your team may be used to dealing with imaginative ideas and lateral thinking, but do you have a chance to step out of the linear, logical thought processes required for most work, and stimulate creativity - in a low pressure, 'non-brainstorming' environment?

WEEKEND WORKSHOPS

Designed to inspire and engage, our popular series of one day workshops are perfect for those wishing to try something a little bit different, or those who can't commit to a regular weekly course.

PARTY BOOKINGS

If you are looking for a party with a difference,  why not think about a dedicated drawing class!

Fun, creative, informative and relaxed: we can tailor an event to fit with your requirements perfectly.
