Edinburgh Art Society

aims to make art accessible to students of all creative abilities and inclinations. Whether you're interested in creating art, writing about art or simply talking about art with like-minded individuals, you've come to the right place! During term time we run a programme of practical art and art appreciation including weekly workshops and life drawing, as well as gallery visits, tours and one off events with art organisations around the city. You're welcome to come along to whatever interests you.


Every Thursday evening during term time we hold tutored arts and crafts classes. Ranging from printmaking to animation, collage to pottery, we’re keen to give students the opportunity to learn new skills. Classes are open to everyone, regardless of ability, but due to space restrictions you may be required to sign up for a place.

We run scheduled weekly classes on Monday and Wednesday evenings which include drop-in sessions open to everyone and tutored classes taught by professional artists that run for the length of the semester.

With a schedule including private gallery tours and discussion groups, and plans already in place for a student curated end-of-year exhibition, it’s shaping up to be an exciting year.
