Are you 13-18 and want a space to be creative outside of school, home and college?

Then come and join our Porthmeor Young Artists group. Held on Sunday afternoons 1pm-4pm, these fortnightly workshops led by a professional artist, will inspire you and add a creative spark to your weekends.

Held at St Ives School of Painting in the Porthmeor Studios, you’ll have all the art materials you could wish for, fantastic guidance in a real working art setting. You will expand your creative mind and skills in painting and drawing. Build your creative toolkit in a magical setting and unlock the artist in you.

This is now an established group working towards their Bronze Arts Award. If you would like to join them, please contact Cat on
