|"Newlyn School of Art offers some of the best short courses in the UK; taught by some of the most exciting artists working in Cornwall".|
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 and printmaking; all taught by over thirty of the most well known artists working in Cornwall today.
We now provide three different longer part-time courses over one year the Mentoring Course held over six weekends, the Defining Practice practical course held over six weekends and the One Year Figure Course attended one day per week over three terms.
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.
