Art Summer School Course

Whether students already have a passion for a particular artistic technique or are beginners hoping to awaken their creativity, this summer school course allows for all levels and abilities to uncover their artistic potential.

A wide range of techniques are covered, from line drawing and oil painting to more contemporary practices such as still photography and cartoon illustration. Projects may be as diverse as painting a self-portrait onto canvas to designing an album cover – the possibilities are endless!


What will it cover?

  • Explore creativity in a fun and relaxed setting
  • Gain inspiration from visits to famous art galleries and exhibitions
  • Develop and hone artistic skills in a range of techniques
  • Have your work showcased in the ISSOS creative night.

The superb natural scenery of St Andrews provides a stunning subject for landscape art and we are also ideally placed to visit some of Britain’s best-known art galleries in nearby Glasgow and Edinburgh, ensuring that our students are never short of inspiration. The advantages of the relaxed and stimulating environment we offer at ISSOS are clear in the work that is produced by the students during their stay.
