Allanbank Arts is a vibrant art centre based in the Eastern Scottish Borders

Our next exhibition is the Affordable Art Sale and Exhibition in the spring during the Bank Holiday weekend of the 26/27th May 2018.

2018 is going to be an exciting time for us with our usual art courses for adults, children and young people, we also have mindfulness, yoga, singing, book group and will be introducing a regular monthly art group.

 We can also offer private tuition in our large and well equipped teaching space.

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.
