Bridge House Art
A CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR STUDYING AND MAKING ART
Welcome to Bridge House Art
a small, independent art school located in the north-west Highlands of Scotland.
We are a small, independent art school and studio, established by Eleanor White in 1995. The school offers a rich and varied programme of courses in the visual arts. Open to all, the beginner or experienced artist alike, through our teaching we aim to develop a greater visual language, increase creativity and encourage new directions of work in all our students. Our ethos is grounded in a belief that we can all think and communicate visually and express a genuine response to the world around us.
Situated in the village of Ullapool, on the north-west coast of Scotland, Bridge House Art has two studios; the garden studio and the garage studio, both are located above the fast-flowing Ullapool river. These lovely light spaces offer excellent facilities and provide a creative environment for a maximum of 12 students.
Bridge House Art primarily offers three types of learning experiences: a unique, sixteen-week Portfolio course, week-long Summer School courses and a selection of pre-recorded On-line courses. All the courses are taught by highly qualified and experienced artist-tutors.
The Summer School runs from mid-June until early September. Every year we offer a variety of week-long art courses in a range of disciplines; drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media landscape painting, artists books and sculpture. Delivered by established artist-tutors, each week has a different theme and focus.
In autumn the Portfolio Course begins. This is a full-time, intensive course consisting of sixteen weeks of study from October until March. The course is designed for those wishing to advance onto studying art at degree level or students who wish to study art at a deeper level for their own professional development.
For those unable to travel to us, or anyone who wants a taster of our teaching style and ethos, we have put together a number of pre-recorded On-Line courses which are designed to be completed at home in your own time and at your own pace.
We invite you to view the selection of courses on offer and hope that you will enjoy our rich and varied programme.
The programme for Summer School 2024 will be available for booking from mid November 2023. Look out for our newsletter and Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.
