About Us

Originally opening its doors for the first time in September 2011, Newlyn School of Art is a dynamic and innovative art school situated in the heart of the famous artistic colony of Newlyn in Cornwall a few hundred yards from where the Forbes School of Painting was run by Stanhope Forbes, the 'Father' of the Newlyn School of Painters, between 1899 and 1938.

The School provides a wide range of high quality and exciting short art courses in disciplines such as painting, drawing, printmaking, pottery, stone carving and fabric design; all taught by over thirty of the most well known artists working in Cornwall today.

We now provide two longer courses one being a Mentoring Weekends Course over a year and the other being a One Year Figure Course attended one day per week.

Don’t miss our weekly Evening Life Drawing classes on Wednesdays.

We have gained a great deal of national press including articles in the Guardian, Telegraph, Spectator and Economist among others much of which can be found on our Press Page of the website.

Newlyn School of Art is a privately run not for profit enterprise and all surplus funds go towards expanding the facilities and provision of the school.
