All our courses are delivered by experienced and qualified tutors, all our art tutors are practicing artists. Our range of courses always includes life drawing and painting, still life painting techniques, ceramics and often much more. We always value kindness as highly as knowledge when we are teaching. . Contact us if you have any queries.

Our home is the 18th century former coach house for the Blackadder estate and is a truly picturesque location set in three acres of grounds with three holiday cottages on site sleeping up to 10 people. You can book accommodation for one of our courses or create your own art holiday with friends, family or colleagues.

Every year we hold our annual Open Exhibition.

We have been fortunate in the past to have showcased an amazing array of work from the Scottish Borders and beyond. The exhibition is open to any artist, professional or otherwise working in painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics or sculpture.
