Leith School of Art runs low cost drawing and painting classes for people who are in receipt of benefits or on a low income. The classes are held weekly at our St James Campus, and are for adults who are interested in art and would like to learn some new skills. All materials are provided and each week new techniques and different ways of working are explored.
