In a Nutshell

Within a year we had so many students that the School moved to a teaching studio and gallery , and before we knew it we had three teaching studios in Norfolk and even one in Anglesey and in North Yorkshire.In 2020 we invested and evolved into Norfolk Painting School Live to offer not just workshops but online art classes to students from all over the world.
