Summer School

Our Summer School programme is a fantastic opportunity to explore what we do at the School, meet our tutors and enjoy a week of creative inspiration.

Every July and August, we have a range of week-long courses exploring drawing, painting, printmaking, jewellery, mixed media and more. From total beginners to professional artists, our aim is to provide excellent quality teaching suitable for all levels of ability. Our tutors are all practising artists and are highly qualified and passionate about their subject; we also have several tutor supports and technicians who ensure the smooth running of the courses.

Our course fees include all the necessary materials, which will be laid out for you at the beginning of the class. This helps you to make the most of your time at the School and means there are no additional costs.

Edinburgh is an exciting city during the summer months and many of our courses involve exploring Edinburgh’s museums, cityscapes and the surrounding landscape. Most days start with a lecture relating aspects of art history to the practical work in the studio.

There is an intimate community atmosphere at Leith School of Art. We hope you will come and be part of our Summer School, spend some time in our unique building and enjoy what the School has to offer.

Our Summer School 2020 programme will be announced and available to book in December 2019.
