leith school of art

Leith School of Art is an independent art school with charitable status, offering a high quality art education to students regardless of financial or personal difficulties. Our charitable aims permeate the School’s approach, contributing to a supportive culture which is enriched by the increased diversity which comes with widened access. We believe that there is intrinsic value in nurturing each individual’s creative flame, and that the art world benefits from having a broader range of voices represented.  We depend on fundraising to deliver Assisted Places, Community Classes, Graduate Residencies, and the Schools Outreach programme as we do not receive state funding. Thank you to all our funders, in particular the lively community of Patrons and Friends of Leith School of Art. Everyone is welcome to join, simply click below for more information.

As an independent art school, we can partner with organisations to find creative and fun ways to help meet Corporate Social Responsibility targets. We welcome our corporate supporters to exclusive events with artists, personalised tours of exhibitions and to enhance their own creativity.
