St Ives, one of the most stunning locations in the world, has long been attracting artists. For 80 years we have been running art classes in Cornwall in Porthmeor studios overlooking the ocean.
We provide quality art course tuition suitable for all levels from complete beginners to those with more experience.
From landscape to life, oils to watercolour we’ll help you find the approach that’s right for you.
