If you are looking for fabulous sea views, a quirky old fishing town, a week of creative fun and loads of learning, book a summer course in this art school. The teachers are laid back and share their knowledge readily, give awesome tips on technique and will offer you many different mediums to experiment with, each and every day. I left with loads of ideas for new projects and felt greatly improved. Even the morning walk to class and lunch breaks in the harbour are delightful. You make a cute portofolio to proudly take home and feel accomplished while having a great time!

As a life Model, working across the UK, I modelled for The School in November 2018. This is the best studio that I have worked for, and I model for over 50 . With a fabulous Atelier atmosphere steeped in history, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff and tutors are consummate professionals and apart from being particularly friendly, warm and, well, just lovely, I was very impressed with the attention that they afford the artist/student. Gary and Liz are incredibly passionate about drawing/painting and their knowledge and experience, coupled with outstanding people skills will leave you wanting to come back again.

Visited for a 5 day course on landscape abstract art. Gentle tuition from Liz, got the impression she was very sensitive to the needs of the group; she was encouraging but also happy to let you find your own way. Loved the interior, a historic studio with lovely old wood and decades of paint marks on the benches. Thought quite small, felt airy with beautiful views over portmoer beach. Great thing about their courses is they supply all the materials. Great to try the artistic lifestyle out for a few days!

As a complete beginner with seven other accomplished artists, Hilary Jean Gibson looked after us really really well. A seasoned watercolorist and excellent teacher. 10am - 4.30 on Saturday and Sunday, inside and en plein air, working in monochrome Prussian blue to start with, we learned all about depth and tones, using salt, cling film, wipe off, wet and dry paper, washing out excess colour and layering that was a revelation. By the end of the course my watercoloring skills had gone from toddler to teenager and I was inspired to greater things. My fellow students found it even more useful they said. Marvellous position right on Portermeor beach, great light and atmosphere. Artists' heaven. Course £135 per head.
