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
