  • Overview
  • More Info

Newlyn School of Art offers inspiring short painting courses taught by many of the most respected artists working in Cornwall today. Many of our courses take place on the dramatic coastline around West Cornwall.

Our class sizes are small to allow for lots of one to one with the artist Tutors. Beginners and more experienced artists welcome. We provide all materials to make things easier for those attending courses.

We offer short courses of 2-7 days in length throughout the year. Our life drawing runs on Wednesdays from 7-9pm and has around eight different artists teaching the sessions on rotation making each week different, fun and energised with everything from traditional drawing through to more experimental approaches.

To find out more about our courses please have a look at our website www.newlynartschool.co.uk or give us a call on 01736365557 to request a brochure.


Free parking in our car park immediately outside the beautiful Victorian school building.


From the cross roads in Newlyn turn up Chywoone Hill (B3315) with the fish and chip shop on your left; drive on 800 yards up the hill and look out for a vertical red sign on your right for Newlyn School of Art. The entrance is next to the sign on the corner of Chywoone Hill and Tredavoe Lane. Take a wide turn in to your right as a ‘hair pin’ coming back on yourself through the black gates. Park for free in the car park at the far end of the building.
