Art Classes

The Academy is always aiming to encourage emerging artists by offering a venue to exhibit their work and while we no longer run an Art School the Academy has a long history of Art Teaching, see the Academy History here.


In 1984 the Academy established the Inverlochy Art School, which while now independent of the Academy, offers many and varied art courses; for information on classes and times see their website or phone (04) 939 2177.


In the tradition of James Nairn, an Academy Artist and Councillor from the 1880’s, a number of Academy artists also tutor art classes, including:
