ST IVES SCHOOL OF PAINTING
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
