The Art Club is bright, new teaching studio situated in the Canonmills area of Edinburgh. Established over eighteen years ago, The Art Club has provided inspiration, tuition, creativity and support to students of all ages seeking to improve their artistic skills. Our new studio is centrally located, spacious and has excellent light for drawing and painting.

CHILDREN’S CLASSES Our children’s classes are progressive and fun, taking a central theme and varying our projects each term to keep our students engaged with interesting new ideas and techniques. The classes have been in existence for over eighteen years and many of our students have gone on to study at art college and schools of architecture, many establishing successful careers.

Fee for after school art class, ten week term: £140 *includes all materials.

Fee for holiday courses, week long: £150 – £165 *includes materials and travel plus gallery or venue costs. Trips to North Berwick or Aberlady include train costs for day trip. Prices on children’s information page.

ADULT CLASSES   We are currently offering drawing and painting courses for beginners and improvers. In these classes we take members through the process of observation, drawing a composition and then painting using the medium preferred by the class, either oil pastel, oil paint or watercolour. The aim of each session is to provide instruction in technique, whilst growing confidence and ability. Classes are small, giving each student the opportunity for attention and encouragement.
