A MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTOR
St Leonards Art School offers a fully equipped studio just a step away from the seafront and historic gardens. Ideally placed to wash you free of those everyday distractions, fire your imagination and promote your sense of well being.
Our tutors each have decades of experience and support all abilities, from first timers to pro, in weekly classes, workshops, retreats and residencies.
Drawing inspiration from St Leonards' vibrant artistic community and glorious scenery, we'll share the vision and techniques inherited from art history whilst encouraging a playful and liberating attitude that stimulates your mind and nurtures your creative soul.
