The Edinburgh Drawing School was founded in 2012.  We are a small, privately run art school based on Great King Street.  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 teenagers and classes for children aged eight years and above. Our small classes are personal and allow students to get the most from their time at the school.
