ST IVES SCHOOL OF PAINT­ING

British Travel Journal - - 48 Hours In -

The St Ives School of Paint­ing was es­tab­lished in 1938 by painter Leonard Fuller, and the school have been run­ning art classes from the same stu­dios over­look­ing Porth­meor Beach ever since.

St Ives is an iconic des­ti­na­tion for artists and art lovers, with a wealth of art to look at, as well as coastal scenery to in­spire. Tutors at the school are all ex­pe­ri­enced prac­tis­ing artists, and the stu­dios are the very same spa­ces where fa­mous res­i­dents of St Ives, such as Ben Ni­chol­son and Bar­bara Hep­worth once came to life draw­ing classes.

The school of­fers a huge range of cour­ses, though ac­com­mo­da­tion is not pro­vided, so vis­i­tors need to find their own – there are plenty of op­tions in bustling St Ives. schoolof­paint­ing.co.uk
