Are you 13-18 and want to make art?

Our Porthmeor Young Artists programme is just that.

Work with a range of professional artists and mediums while taking inspiration from the beach and local landscape.  Learn how to draw a clothed model and experiment with your new skills in our fully equipped and inspiring studios.

These workshops are what you’ve been looking for to give you creative space outside of school, home and college and add a spark to your weekends.

Held on fortnightly Sundays 1pm-4pm from October to July.

Check out our Instagram page and our Young Artists Festival page to see what we’ve been doing .
