Leith School of Art

Details
Leith School of Art seeks to provide a welcoming, dynamic place to learn the fundamentals of drawing and painting.

Our day courses offer students the opportunity to develop their interest in art and design, benefiting from our tutors’ depth of knowledge and passion for their subject. All of our tutors are practising artists and craftspeople, who will work with you individually and as part of a group, providing practical instruction and encouragement. Our course fees include all the necessary materials, which will be laid out for you at the beginning of the class. This helps you to make the most of your time at the School and means there are no additional costs. Our courses take place in studios at 25 North Junction Street (NJS Campus) and 11a John’s Place (St James Campus).

Before booking, please read our booking information and note the location of your class. If the first term is currently underway, selected courses will open for booking mid November. If you would like to join a waiting list, please contact the School.
